Faculty Concert and International Food Reception

January 10th, 2018

The event will be on February 25th at 4 PM.  The event sold out!

The Nelly Berman School of Music is holding its Annual Faculty Recital and International Dinner Reception on Sunday, February 25 at St. Luke United Methodist Church in Bryn Mawr. This event will benefit the NBS Classical Music Institute’s Scholarship, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created by Nelly Berman which has supported hundreds of talented children through a scholarship program that is based on both merit and financial need.

Our annual Faculty Recital draws an audience of over 200 people and is one of the highlights of the year. The concert will showcase the Nelly Berman School’s world-class piano, string, winds, brass, and voice faculty. Members of our faculty have graced the world’s finest stages, performing with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, and The Mariinsky Orchestra, among many others.
All proceeds from this event will go directly to our scholarship program. These scholarships enable students to fulfill their musical potential as well as contribute to the cultural richness of our community. Our students are winners of local, national, and even international competitions. They have appeared everywhere from the Kimmel Center to Carnegie Hall, performed as soloists with local orchestras including the Philadelphia Orchestra, and have been featured on the nationally-renowned radio show, “From the Top” on NPR.

This event is now over – check our Facebook page for more details and pictures:
