Fans of "Treme," the HBO drama series set and shot in post-Katrina New Orleans, will remember Lucia Micarelli as the street-busking musician Annie.
Now viewers can catch the violin virtuoso in a PBS concert at 8 p.m. Sunday, and hear selections ranging from classical to jazz to traditional fiddle music and Americana.
"An Evening with Lucia Micarelli," filmed in 2017 in Santa Barbara, California, is part of Louisiana Public Broadcasting's spring Festival!, which raises funds to pay for programming throughout the year. (WLPB, Channel 27, is on cable Channel 12.)
Micarelli began studying violin at just 3 years old and was performing with symphony orchestras by age 6, a news release says.
"In the past few years she has been a featured soloist in two of Josh Groban’s world tours. She toured extensively with Chris Botti and was featured in his 'Live From Boston' PBS special, as well as Barbra Streisand’s 2013 international tour. She has released two solo albums, 'Music From A Farther Room' and 'Interlude,' " the release also says.
In addition to music specials, look for new history and nature programs during the festival.
