John Wion Homepage
As my life from the age of ten has produced an ever deepening involvement with the flute, much of the material here will reflect that interest. My performing career has encompassed a variety of activities from symphony orchestra to chamber music to solo. I have made an number of recordings some of which can be ordered directly from me. I served as the principal flutist of the New York City Opera fom 1965 to 2002 and taught flute at The Hartt School from 1977 to 2007. I have written a number of articles on the flute and have edited and published flute music. With an unusual surname (pronounced as in lion) I have also pursued an interest in genealogy.
