The Nelly Berman School Classical Music Institute is proud to present the “Celebration of the Arts” Festival, to be held at West Chester University on Sunday, March 15, 2020. This event will include recitals in the Madeleine Wing Adler Theatre by the winners of our internal student competition at 10:30am and 1:00pm, and a “Celebration of the Arts” Gala Concert at 3:30pm.

In the “Celebration of the Arts” Gala Concert, we will be collaborating with the Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet, whose dancers will perform choreographed pieces alongside our musicians on-stage. We have also reached out local arts centers and schools to feature their students’ artwork outside the concert hall.

Tickets will be available at the door: $20/adult and $15/student.

This event will benefit the Nelly Berman School Classical Music Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides scholarships to deserving, hard-working young musicians and organizes concerts, masterclasses, workshops and events (such as the one above) for the greater Philadelphia community.
