Olivia Larco has music in her blood: her mother is a pianist, and her father plays viola in the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In March 2020, she made her recital and radio debuts at the same time, appearing on NPR’s From the Top in concert at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills; later that year, she began lessons with 1993 Cliburn Finalist Fabio Bidini at The Colburn School. She is a current Lang Lang Scholar who received a full merit scholarship to the 2022 Aspen Summer Music Festival. The Pasadena resident attends the Westridge School for Girls and made her national TV debut in May 2019, playing a piano prodigy on the series finale of ABC’s “Modern Family.” She has also written three novels.
