Jan 21st, 2018 / Featured Guest Pianist Ana Glig
We are very excited to announce that our guest performer on Sunday, January 21st, 2018 will be pianist Ana Glig.
Ana Glig recently moved from New York City to Cape Cod, Harwich, MA. Along her busy schedule as a mother of two year old, she is looking to deepen connection to classical music world, meet and collaborate with musicians of Cape Cod and beyond.
Georgian/American pianist Ana Glig (Gligvashvili) has performed as a soloist and chamber musician at concert venues such as Steinway Hall, the NYC Consulate General of Poland, the Ukrainian Institute of America, Bohemian National Hall, Columbia University’s Faculty House and Roone Arledge Auditorium and Consulate of Germany (New York), Subculture, NYU Frederick Loewe and Black Box Theaters, Mannes Concert Halls (New York, NY), and the Church of the Redeemer (Morristown, NJ). Ana Glig has performed internationally in Germany, Estonia, Georgia, Poland and Israel.
As a soloist, Ana made her debuts with Rishon LeZion and Evgeni Mikeladze Symphonic Orchestras (Israel and Georgia). Prizewinner of the Tel-Hai International Piano Concerto Competition (Israel) and Georgian Musician-Performers Competition, among others, Ana received the Alfred Cortot Award for the interpretation of Romantic music at the Tbilisi International Piano Competition.
Born in Telavi, Georgia, Ana’s first musical impressions were of the Georgian folk song "Suliko," which inspired and influenced her early passion for music. With her husband, pianist (and lawyer) James Rosenblum, Ana gave concerts in U.S. and Georgia to support children with disabilities.
One of Ana’s long-term interests is the synthesis of music with various art forms. Throughout her career she has presented various concert-projects, such as exhibitionrecitals, “Chopin 24 Preludes and 24 Photo-Preludes”, thematically connecting the
musical form of ‘prelude’ to visual photography. In 2017,
Ms. Gligvashvili gave a solo recital, presenting Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage, integrating Liszt’s piano works with paintings by Courbet, Corot, Amberg, and others.
Ana Glig holds a Master’s degree in piano performance from Mannes College, The New School of Music and Bachelor’s degree from Tbilisi State Conservatory (Georgia). She studied with Victor Rosenbaum, Jerome Rose and Revaz Tavadze.
In 2017, Ana completed an Advanced Certificate in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from NYU Steinhardt (New York University), where she studied with Artist Faculty member Eteri Abdjaparidze. For the past two years, Ms. Glig has also
served as a member of the adjunct piano faculty at NYU Steinhardt.
So what is Open Mic Classical?
An “Open Mic” is for popular music only, right?
We are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music, to help our community's musicians share their music with a friendly, supportive and appreciative audience.
Are you a doctor with a classical horn habit, or an orchestra member who misses playing in small ensembles? Are you an aspiring young student who doesn't ever get a chance to play with a pianist, but would like to develop your performing skills? Or a composer eager to try out your newest work?
Dust off your flugelhorn, oil your keys, drink your raw egg, and come share your talent in an intimate and casual atmosphere.
Admission is donation based, and classical musicians of all ages and levels are welcome.
Pianist on site is available on request to accompany you.
“Open Mic Classical” is brought to you by clarinetist Mónika Woods (winner of the Cape Symphony's 2013 Soloist Competition) and amateur violist and sculptor Robert Marcus representing First Parish Brewster, with Lucy Banner and Elizabeth Tipton as collaborative pianists.
