Fr. Tom is very happy to announce that the Parish hired a new full-time Music Director! We are very excited and blessed to have Aniello “Nello” Barone join our wonderful staff in mid-August! Born and raised in Melrose Park, Aniello "Nello" Barone completed his bachelor's degree in Music Education at Wheaton College and went on to teach general music at St. Eugene School in Norridge, serve as organist at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Lisle, and accompany the Downers Grove Choral Society in Downers Grove. In 2019, Nello moved to Kansas City, MO, to pursue his masters in Vocal Performance and graduated in 2021 with his Masters of Music. He remained in the Kansas City metro for four years, serving first as the Associate Music Director at Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Leawood, KS, and eventually as the Director of Music Ministry at St. Peter's Catholic Parish. In his free time, Nello enjoys good coffee, reading, traveling, composing, watching soccer, serving others, thoughtful conversations, an occasional cigar, and learning how to box. He speaks
conversational Italian and would love to practice with somebody! Nello asks for prayers as he begins his leadership role at our parish. He is honored to serve as the Director of Music at St. Paul VI Parish and looks forward to serving our community.
He wanted to share one of his favorite Scripture passages as it sums up how his faith and love of music guide his days: “Sing to him a new song; skillfully play with joyful chant. For the Lord’s word is upright; all his works are trustworthy.” Psalm 33:3-4 (NABRE)
