We happily welcome Dr. David Cortello, our new Director of Music Ministry. David is a native of New Orleans and an avid Saints fan (Who Dat!). As a teenager he began playing guitar at St. Clement of Rome in Metairie, Louisiana, where he continued a part-time, and then full-time career in music ministry. David received his BA in Music from the University of New Orleans and after many years of composing for church, he chose to formalize his education with an MM and Ph.D. in music composition from Louisiana State University. He plans to continue composing for his new music ministry and congregation at St. Aloysius. He is both a pianist and guitarist and loves the sound of the human voice and the role choral music plays in creating good liturgy.  David and his wife, Susie, will visit their friends and family in New Orleans and Houston often, “but are very excited about their new adventure in the foothills of North Carolina.”
