Ingrid Jacoby

I.C. Artists

It’s not easy to make a living as a concert pianist, but St. Louis native Ingrid Jacoby is doing just that.

Jacoby makes her home in London these days, but she grew up in Olivette, Mo. and went to Ladue High School—for at least part of the day. By the age of 12 she was already spending half days studying piano alongside college students at the St. Louis Conservatory of Music. 

Jacoby started taking piano when she was four, but found it boring until she switched teachers.
