A member of a musical family, Dello Joio studied organ under his father. As a neoclassical composer he frequently combined old forms such as the ricercar, variation, sonata, and chaconne with contemporary musical techniques. His music , harmonically conservative , has melodic appeal and rhythmic liveliness. He is particularly noted for his choral music.

His father, Casimiro, was an organist, pianist , part-time composer, and vocal coach and coached many opera stars from the Metropolitan Opera. In , he received a scholarship to the Juilliard School , where he studied composition with Bernard Wagenaar. While he was a student, he worked as organist at St. In , he began studying with Paul Hindemith , who encouraged him to follow his own lyrical bent, rather than sacrificing it to the atonal systems then popular.
He was a prolific composer in a variety of genres, but is perhaps best known for his choral music. Dello Joio also wrote several pieces for high school and professional string orchestra, including the difficult piece Choreography: Three Dances for String Orchestra. In he became associated with the dancer Martha Graham , for whom he wrote several works, including Diversion of Angels and Seraphic Dialogue, a recomposition for chamber orchestra of his Symphony: The Triumph of Saint Joan. The suite was commissioned by Baldwin-Wallace College for their symphonic band, and was premiered on March 13, with the composer conducting.
In , he retired and moved to Long Island. Despite infirmities, Dello Joio remained active as a composer until his final years, continuing to produce chamber, choral, and even orchestral music. He likes to use traditional chants as a cantus firmus with richly contrapuntal settings. It is amusing, but not at all incongruous, to find Gregorian melodies and jazzy rhythms rubbing shoulders, for they are blended in a creatively spontaneous texture.
