“Rising Stars” Student Concerts 2020

Our ‘Rising Stars’ student concert series takes place annually in June and December.

Prior to the concerts, students are emailed sign-ups for five to six dates with afternoon and evening options spanning two weekends. Participation in these concerts is free and open to all students of the Nelly Berman School of Music.

All students are encouraged to sign up for the opportunity to listen to their peers and perform on the big stage at St. Luke United Methodist Church in Bryn Mawr, PA!

This June, we’ll be holding most of our Rising Stars concerts virtually, with one live performance option in the Recital Room at NBS:


  • Wednesday, June 16 BY 11:59PM for the Friday, June 18 concert date
  • Friday, June 18 BY 11:59PM for the Sunday, June 20 concert dates
  • Monday, June 22 BY 11:59PM for the Wednesday, June 23 concert dates


  • 7PM on Friday, June 18: VIDEO LINK
