Featured Musicians of our January 20th, 2018 / 3pm Open Mic Classical will be pianist Ana Glig.
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.
