Lucia Micarelli has carved a unique path in the world of music, captivating audiences with her exceptional talent and unbridled passion. Drawing inspiration from classical masterpieces, jazz improvisation, and diverse global traditions, Micarelli transcends musical boundaries, weaving a tapestry that is both timeless and contemporary.

Born in Queens, New York, Lucia was immersed in the arts from age three, diligently practicing dance, piano, and violin. It didn't take long for Lucia to discover her calling and greatest talent was the violin, which quickly became her main focus. After moving to Hawaii at the age of five, she continued to refine her skills with teachers Kathryn Lucktenberg and Sheryl Shohet. At just six years old, Lucia made her debut as a soloist with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra, setting the stage for frequent appearances on local television shows and concerts throughout the Islands.

At the age of eleven, Lucia was accepted into the prestigious Juilliard School of Music's Pre-College Division. Under the guidance of renowned violin pedagogue Dorothy DeLay, as well as Itzhak Perlman, Cho-Liang Lin, and Won-Bin Yim, she honed her skills and quickly rose to prominence. Within a year, she won the Pre-College Concerto Competition and settled into a routine that combined instruction with performances at renowned venues such as the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, and other international stages. Lucia spent her summers at the Aspen Music Festival, where she performed regularly with the orchestra and won the Violin Concerto Competition in 2000, leading to a performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Festival Orchestra.

At seventeen, Lucia left Juilliard to study with celebrated international violinist Pinchas Zukerman at the Manhattan School of Music. During this period, her interest in non-classical music began to grow. She began moonlighting with local jazz and rock bands in New York clubs, and soon after, she embarked on a tour as a featured violinist and concertmaster with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. In addition, she’s been a featured soloist in three of Josh Groban’s global tours, was featured on tour with Barbra Streisand, toured extensively with Chris Botti and was featured in his “Live From Boston” PBS special. She also released two solo studio albums, "Music From A Farther Room" and "Interlude". In 2009, she ventured into acting, landing the starring role of "Annie" in HBO's critically acclaimed series "Treme," created by David Simon and Eric Overmeyer. The series spanned four seasons and received a Peabody Award and a Primetime Emmy Award. It was during her time in New Orleans filming "Treme" that Lucia discovered her singing voice and a love for storytelling through song.

While Lucia's creative journey is marked by her commitment to growth and exploration, her unwavering dedication to classical music endures, and she continues to share her love for the genre with audiences worldwide. She has graced some of the most prestigious stages in the world, including Carnegie Hall, Benaroya Hall, Sydney Opera House, Boston Symphony Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Greek Theater, Grand Ole Opry, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and Madison Square Garden.

Most recently, Micarelli collaborated with acclaimed guitarist Leo Amuedo to record the album Saudade, the first album released by the duo. Released in September 2023, Suadade showcases the pairs diverse influences moving from jazz, to classical, to traditional fiddle music, Americana, and Brazilian music.

While Lucia Micarelli's impressive accomplishments have rightfully garnered recognition, it is her profound ability to forge deep connections with audiences that truly sets her apart. With her dedication to her craft and relentless pursuit of creative growth, Lucia's artistry resonates with authenticity and emotional depth, whether she is performing in esteemed concert halls, collaborating with renowned musicians, or captivating viewers on screen.

"Two things remain consistent at all her shows though: her throaty but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hard-mattress comfort to it that’s part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her band’s rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou-thick standup bass." -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
