Percussionist turned Food Network star

As a teenager, Molly Yeh performed on percussion from Carnegie Hall for From the Top. Today, she's a food blogger, host of her own Food Network show, and is guest-hosting From the Top on July 21.

7/7       From Carnegie Hall’s beautiful Weill Music Room in New York City, this show brings together a line up of fantastic young musicians from across the nation and beyond. We hear an 11-year-old violinist from New York stunningly perform Hubay’s Carmen Fantasie Brillante, we meet a pianist from Los Angeles who views performing as a form of service, and a teenage bassoonist from Venezuela, now studying at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, dazzles the audience with his mature musicality and virtuosity.

7/14      Concert pianist Orli Shaham guest hosts this week’s From the Top from Brunswick, Maine! We’ll hear her talk shop with a superb teenage pianist who performs the music of Brahms, meet a violinist from Maine who happens to do serious biomedical research when he’s not in the practice room, and a very young, very fun brother-sister guitar duo plays contemporary music from Brazil.

7/21      Guest Host Molly Yeh is a young chef with her own show on the Food Network called “Girl Meets Farm,” but before she developed an interest in food, she was an extraordinary classical percussionist who appeared on From the Top over a decade ago when she was just 15-years-old. This week, she returns to introduce us to an impressive lineup of young musicians including a flutist who performs music inspired by the great Maya Angelou and a 14-year-old cellist who gives a dazzling performance of the music Tchaikovsky.

7/28      Time for Three – violinist Nicolas Kendall, violinist (and From the Top Alum) Charles Yang, and double-bassist Ranaan Meyer – joins host Christopher O’Riley and some exceptional pre-collegiate musicians for an exciting program featuring music spanning from the 18th to the 21st century.
