Lucia Micarelli (born July 9, 1983 in Queens, NY) is an American violinist and actress best known for her collaborations with Josh Groban and classic rock band Jethro Tull.

Of Italian - Korean heritage, she began playing the violin at the age of three and played her first concert with an orchestra at six years old. She was classically trained at Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music. She was the concertmaster with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra on their Christmas Season Tour in 2003. After her tour with TSO, Micarelli joined Josh Groban on his Closer Tour as a guest soloist and concertmaster.

In 2004, Micarelli released her first album Music From A Farther Room, executive produced by Groban. It is a blend of classical pieces and familiar pop songs, including Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", David Bowie's "Lady Grinning Soul" and David Foster's "To Love You More". In May 2005, Micarelli opened for West End singer Michael Ball. In October and November 2005, she toured the United States with Jethro Tull. Both Lucia and Jethro Tull were so pleased at the quality of the performances, and at how well they worked together, that they decided to tour together for much of 2006. In 2007, Micarelli toured with Josh Groban again to promote his album Awake, and completed her second album, titled Interlude.
