A SHORT HISTORY
Bion translates from Japanese as “beautiful sound”, added to Cantorum to form Bion Cantorum which translates to Singers of Beautiful Sound. The concept of developing a choral group dedicated to providing beautiful, exciting music to area residents and to provide the opportunity of these residents to participate in a mixed community chorus was a seed planted and encouraged by Maestro T. Francis Wada. former Conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. .
Due to health concerns over the coronovirs covid-19 pandemic, Bion followed sound medical advice and cancelled concerts beginning with its spring, 2020 event. Our November 20, 2021 concert was scheduled when conditions improved. We encourage attendees to wear masks to assure that we, and our audience, are safe to perform and listen to beautiful choral sounds.
