From an early age Monika Ledzion-Porczyńska studied music by learning to play the violin. In the field of solo singing, she graduated from the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw in the class of Professor Halina Słonicka.

In addition to her operatic repertoire, she also enjoys and finds herself equally at home with oratorio and cantata works and vocal lyrics, which she successfully performed in: the National Philharmonic, Poznan Philharmonic , Baltic Philharmonic, Cracow Philharmonic, Pomorska Philharmonic, Podkarpacka Philharmonic and as part of festivals: the International Festival of Contemporary Music "Warsaw Autumn" and the Festival of Polish Music.
