In January 2013, Ward's creative prowess expanded and Classical Melodies Inc. was birthed.  In May 2023, Classical Melodies Inc. was granted 501 (c) 3 status and became recognized as a Nonprofit organization.


Classical Melodies Inc. is a performance-based organization focusing on introducing Classical music to underserved/ under-represented communities, particularly school-aged children and communities of color.  "Explore The Unpopular" is the motto of Classical Melodies Inc., and "dispel stereotypes and share Classical music with EVERYONE, not just the elite" is the mission statement of the organization.   Sharing this particular art-form with these communities can and will possibly broaden their horizons, and foster an attitude of tolerance for others. As an African-American Opera singer, I feel it is my duty and an honor to "spark" the torch for the next generation. As it's been said, "if they can see it, they can believe it."  

Ward's medium of introduction is through a piano and voice performance, emphasizing Classical vocal repertoire including opera, art songs, and spirituals as well as historical aspects of the art form.  This presentation is approximately one hour. 

 Classical music, as a whole, is an under-celebrated genre with numerous benefits for students that are underutilized.  Ward believes, as well as proven statistics, children with musical interests can and do excel in the classroom.  Although music programs are being sacrificed daily, we cannot ignore its immeasurable rewards, with possibilities including gaining a future colleague.
