Hmm based on your criteria...

You seem to want something that is decent in low light and flexible (concert and wedding) and something with good resolution that you can use in controlled conditions (studio).

So, you'll want some reasonable zooms and a few choice primes.

I'd go new Canon 6d with the 24-105 zoom (handy general purpose flexible lens) - 2300 bucks

Used 70-200mm f 2.8 IS lens  - 1600 bucks

An assortment of bright, but not high end primes  (used) - lets say

35mm f2  260 bucks

50mm f1.8  200 bucks

85mm f1.8  350 bucks

That brings us to 4700 bucks - spend it on a decent set of radio triggers or maybe a half decent tripod if you don't have one.

Or use it on a photo course or to pay for model fees or other photo related activities.
