A supremely gifted classical crossover artist, violinist (and vocalist) Lucia Micarelli makes her Rockport debut while touring on the heels of her widely acclaimed PBS special. After stints touring with Josh Groban, Chris Botti and Barbara Streisand, as well as landing a lead role in HBO’s prestige drama Treme, Micarelli is now primed to show the world her unique and powerful classical/pop hybrid sound.
Born in Queens and raised in Honolulu, Micarelli was a child prodigy on violin, making her debut as a soloist with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra at age 6. She later studied at Juilliard (Pre-College Division) and the Manhattan School of Music (studying with Pinchas Zuckerman), but despite success at competitions and high profile appearances, other musical styles began calling to her. She started moonlighting with local jazz and rock bands in New York clubs, and by the following year, she had accepted an offer to tour with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as a featured violinist and concertmaster.
That experience opened her eyes (and ears) to a whole different side of the music world, and soon she bagn performing with a host of some of the biggest names in pop music. She’s been a featured soloist in two of Josh Groban’s world tours, toured extensively with Chris Botti and was featured in his Live From Boston PBS special,and was featured in Barbra Streisand’s 2013 international tour. She also released two solo albums, Music from a Farther Room and Interlude. But 2009 saw Lucia broadening her career even further when she was cast in the starring role of “Annie” in HBO’s critically acclaimed series, Treme, created by David Simon and Eric Overmeyer, which ran for four seasons and won a Peabody Award as well as a Primetime Emmy Award.
Currently, Lucia has just finished her first PBS concert special which has been airing throughout the US in 2018. This PBS event is an eclectic journey through her many musical influences – from classical to jazz to traditional fiddle music and Americana – all bound together by her trademark emotional vulnerability and technical wizardry.
