He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Loyola Marymount University and a Master’s in Music in Vocal Performance. Joe served on the Music Advisory Board and the Diocesan Liturgical Commission for the Diocese of Orange and presently serves on the Liturgical Commission for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He brings a wealth of knowledge and musical skill to his new position. Hear Joe describe the LA cathedral as well as his hopes and dreams for the future direction of the music program. You will enjoy hearing both of these two cathedral musicians (including host John Romeri from Christ Cathedral) talk about the role of the Cathedral, and an explanation of the role and responsibilities of a cathedral church in a diocese.
