A few episodes ago, we talked about this Chinese reality TV show that’s looking for the next great opera singer. Here’s a competitor…


Tenor Nathan Ward was a dear friend of many in Chicago, including George and Tobias. After depression took Nathan’s life in October 2018, the University of Missouri — Nathan’s alma mater — established the Nathan Ward Memorial Scholarship Fund. While Nathan’s time in the opera world was brief, it was impactful and he experienced great success as a young man.  It is with a heavy heart that we ask our listeners to consider donating to this fund that will establish a scholarship pool to allow young singers to grow through their education at the University of Missouri.
