Born in Queens, New York, Micarelli was immersed in the arts by the age of three, diligently practicing dance, piano, and violin. It didn't take long to discover her passion 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 on the violin, and just a year later, made her debut as a soloist with the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra. Soon after, she began frequently appearing on local television shows and concertizing throughout the islands.

At age 11, Micarelli was accepted into the Juilliard School of Music's Pre-College Division. She studied with the renowned violin pedagogue Dorothy DeLay, and also took lessons with Itzhak Perlman, Cho-Liang Lin, and Won-Bin Yim. Within a year, playing against some of the world's most gifted prodigies, she won the Pre-College Concerto Competition and settled into a routine that would combine instruction with concert appearances at the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, and other prominent international venues. She spent her summers at the Aspen Music Festival, regularly performing with the orchestra, and won the Violin Concerto Competition in 2000, resulting in a performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Festival Orchestra.

At 17, Micarelli left Juilliard to attend the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with celebrated international violinist Pinchas Zukerman. It was during this time that she began to develop a growing interest in non-classical music, moonlighting with local jazz and rock bands in New York clubs. By the following year, she had accepted an offer to tour with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as a featured violinist and concertmaster.

Over the last ten years, Micarelli's profile has continued to soar. 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 (from which the duet they performed together, "Emmanuel," has received more than five million YouTube views), 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," which ran for four seasons and won a Peabody Award and a Primetime Emmy Award.
