"I've never known anyone whose creativity flows like that of Alyce Metallo. She is a Vesuvius of musical giftedness."
- Marty McCall, First Call
The extraordinary journey of this DC native started when she was merely two years old. By the time she was in lessons at five, it became evident that playing the piano and making music would be at the center of her future. She studied at the Benjamin T. Rome School of Music at the Catholic University of America and earned a degree in Music Education and Piano from the College of Fine Arts at Howard University both in her hometown. She was accepted into the University of Madrid as an exchange student and subsequently did graduate work at the University of Santiago de Compostela in Santiago, Spain in a unique program for Spanish teachers.
Her love for foreign languages and cultures is paralleled with her gift of music and performance ministry. As an exchange student at the University of Madrid (Studies: Arabic, Hebrew and Portuguese) and a full-time minister of music in the DC area, Metallo balanced these two areas: music and languages, fully embracing the call on her life to minister in worship to the peoples of the world – all in need of the saving power of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Metallo began full-time music ministry as a worship leader at Northern Virginia mega church McLean Bible in 2009 and eventually became the Director of Creative Arts for two of their satellite campuses. During her tenure at McLean Bible Church, she established vibrant and thriving creative-tech teams ranging from praise teams and choirs to camera, lighting and media crews.
She continues to live out her passions for team-building, leading worship, songwriting and producing and is currently the Director of Worship and Technical Arts at Capital Church in Vienna, VA and her faith is the heartbeat of her music and ministry.
