She received her musical training at the prestigiuos Gh. Dima Music Academy, where she graduated with high honors and a Masters in Stylistics of Clarinet Performance.

Mónika was featured as a soloist with Cape Symphony and she is the 2013 New England Concerto Competition first prize winner. In October 2013, Mónika had the great honor to be invited to play clarinet for the president of Hungary, János Áder, on his first visit to the US (Boston).

Ana Glig (a.k.a. Gligvashvili) is an award-winning Georgian-American pianist, praised by Musical America for her ability to “capture hearts.” Glig has performed widely in the United States as well as Europe, including her native Georgia. As an orchestra soloist Glig debuted with Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto with Rishon LeZion and Evgeni Mikeladze Symphonic Orchestras, in Israel and Georgia.

Her playing is noticed for sensitivity, depth of interpretation and ability to connect music through various thematic concepts and medias. She has recently released her album ‘Reminiscences.’Based on the concept of homesickness and inspired by Western and Eastern European Music, the ‘Reminiscences’ serve as Glig's artistic endeavor to portray the world of an immigrant with underlying themes of separation, growth and longing for home. Ana Glig holds a Master’s degree in piano performance from Mannes School of Music, The New School and an advanced certificate in piano performance and pedagogy from NYU Steinhardt, New York University.
