BIOGRAPHY

Picture

The early years

Melinda Dumitrescu Carla was born in December 1975 in Sinaia (Romania), in a family of musicians.

Her father put a violin in her hand at an early age and at the same time her mother directs her towards Love for the Catholic Faith.

She starts playing in concerts at nine years old as soloist, accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of her city Brasov, Transylvania, Romania.

She received numerous awards in Romania and abroad, particularly in 1990, at the age of 14 years old, in Stresa, Milan (Italy), she won the International Gold Cup ('Coppa d'Oro').

Movie

An unforgettable moment

Invitations to play in Europe increases, and at the age of 16, she is invited to play in Japan.

During this tour, in Tokyo (in the picture with Prince Akishino, the second son of Emperor Akihito of Japan), on St. Nicholas's eve, during Advent, she lives a special experiences after the third encore requested by the public, when she chooses to play the Bach-Gounod 's Ave Maria as fourth encore.

She introduces this song as the announcement of the coming of the Messiah, explaining that Advent for Christians is the preparation for Christmas. The non-Christian Japanese public welcomes with great emotion this moment. Melinda, at the age of 16, begins to understand that, far from home, through that experience, all the sacrifices, hours of study and travels had undertaken a deeper meaning, far beyond the momentary applauses and success.

Picture

A brilliant career

She knows in that occasion her future world-renowned master, Zachar Bron, that the following year welcomes her in his international classical violin class at the Musikhochschule (Music Academy) in Lübeck, Germany, with a scholarship granted her by the the Academy together with the Foundation Elias Bucharest.

Thus a new stage of her life begins, accompanied by the prayers of her mother and her loved ones.

While her successes increase (in the picture with Anne Fitzalan-Howard, Duchess of Norfolk) and more doors open to her solo career, Melinda continues to search for the thread of her life.

Location

The vocation

In her ongoing research, dissatisfied by the success on the stage, through a book presented her by a devoted friend, in 1996 she arrives in Medjugorje, Marian Shrine, where she gradually discovers her mission and his vocation, through prayer.

She continues her studies and his concerts, and after graduating in February 2000, at the age of 24, she give up her career (she was also offered 500 euro per minute for her performances) and remains at the service of the parish in Medjugorje, animating , with his violin and singing, the liturgy, the Youth Festival, various moments of prayer and cultural events. Her animation and music performances achieved many states in the world, including United States, South Korea, Mexico, Panama and Puerto Rico.

At the same time, until 2012, she lived a spiritual experience in the Community of the Sons of the Divine Love. In this experience she understands her vocation as consecrated secular.

Movie

Little Stars of Jesus and Mary

In 1998, during the Youth Festival, was born in his heart a desire for a project that, detaching from the Community of the Sons of Divine Love, she decided to start in 2013.

The project is called 'Little Stars of Jesus and Mary'. The project involves young musicians and artists and aims to be an evangelization's tool through the beauty of music and art, on the basis of prayer, sacraments and commitment to chastity.

The Little Stars of Jesus and Mary animate prayer meetings all over the world, and offer concerts and shows of evangelization combining classical music, sacred music, dance and drama.

In the first year of the project, the Little Stars of Jesus and Mary have held concerts and animated prayer meetings in various countries, including Italy, Croatia, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Germany, Austria, Romania and South Korea.

2.2
About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a Website and identify users returning to a Website.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies.

A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).

A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.


2.3
Our cookies

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this Website.

We may send to you the following cookies:


Cookie Type Duration Description

__utma Performance This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. This cookie lasts for 2 years by default and distinguishes between users and sessions. It is used to calculate new and returning visitor statistics. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. The lifespan of the cookie can be customised by website owners.
__utmb Performance This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. This cookie determines new sessions and visits and expires after 30 minutes. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Any activity by a user within the 30 minute life span will count as a single visit, even if the user leaves and then returns to the site. A return after 30 minutes will count as a new visit, but a returning visitor.
__utmc Performance This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. It is not used in most sites but is set to enable interoperability with the older version of Google Analytics code known as Urchin. In this older versions this was used in combination with the __utmb cookie to identify new sessions/visits for returning visitors. When used by Google Analytics this is always a Session cookie which is destroyed when the user closes their browser. Where it is seen as a Persistent cookie it is therefore likely to be a different technology setting the cookie
__utmv Performance This is an optional additional cookie set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. This cookie is used when site owners create custom visitor-level variables for customising what can be measured. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. It has a default lifespan of two years, although this can be customised by site owners.
__utmz Performance This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour measure of site performance.

The cookie has a life span of 6 months and is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
_ga Performance This cookie name is associated with Google Universal Analytics – which is a significant update to Google’s more commonly used analytics service. The new service reduces the reliance on cookies in general, and only sets this and one other – _gat, although Google also say data can be collected without setting any cookies. This cookie is used to distinguishes unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.
