Dr.-Anthony-Baron.png

Director of Music & Choirmaster

Dr. Anthony Baron

Dr. Anthony Baron has been serving the Church through musical prayer since joining his local parish’s children’s choir in first grade. It was through singing in church choir that Dr. Baron developed a love for hymns and praising God through song.

After relocating to Vero Beach in 2017 to serve as Director of Choral Music at the Saint Edward’s School, Dr. Baron was honored to be called to serve as Associate Director of Music/Choirmaster at Trinity Episcopal Church. Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Michael Curry asks Christians throughout the world to “[reorient their lives] around the teachings of Jesus, and around his very spirit.” At Trinity Episcopal Church the vital role music has in traditional Anglican liturgy for all seeking to reorient themselves to Christ’s presence and offer praise and honor to God is recognized. For a church musician, this creates many opportunities for not only musical but spiritual fulfillment.

Dr. Baron lives in Vero Beach with his wife Beverly, a singer and voice teacher. He is a graduate of Westminster Choir College (B.M.) and the Eastman School of Music (M.M., D.M.A). Dr. Baron has served in music ministry roles in parishes throughout New Jersey, New York, and Michigan. He has been on the teaching faculties of the University of Rochester, Nazareth College, and Cranbrook Schools. In his free time, Dr. Baron enjoys swimming, travel, and enjoying a nice dinner with friends old and new.
