Mia Reilly-Yeh is the daughter of American clarinetist John Bruce Yeh. Her sister Molly Yeh is a cookbook author and blogger. She is the last born in her family; her two older siblings are Molly Yeh and Jenna Yeh. Mia’s mother, Teresa Reilly, is a clarinetist, and she performed on the album Synergy with Mia’s sister Molly and her father.
Educational Background and Personal Life
Mia has been in the spotlight thanks to her father and older sibling, Molly Yeh, and not much about her is on the internet. However, she is probably in high school and studies in the school her sister studied that is Glenbrook South High School.
Mia Reilly-Yeh is too young to be in a relationship. She looks up to her parents, clarinetists, and her older sisters, both chefs. When Mia comes of age and wants to choose a career, she might decide to become a clarinetist like her parents or go her sister’s way and become a cook.
Mia’s father was born into a music lover family; in addition to being a scientist, his mother was a pianist, and his father was a singer. He used to play in local chamber music ensembles before he was hired as a solo bass clarinetist for Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Two years later, Mia’s father became the assistant principal and E-flat clarinetist for Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
John was a founding member of the New York New Music Ensemble and founded Chicago Pro Musica, which he still directs. Its first recording, L’Histoire du Soldat, won a Grammy Award for Best New Musical Artist.
Regarding his personal life, Mia Yeh’s father has been married twice, first to Jody Yeh, a social worker and clarinetist. They met while trying to find their way in their music careers. Their marriage yielded two daughters, but they divorced years later. John then met Mia Reilly’s mother, started a relationship, and they have been together since.
Mia’s Older Sister
Besides her culinary work, Mia’s sister is also a percussionist, having studied at Midwest Young Artists Conservatory. Molly attended Juilliard School and earned a Bachelor of Music degree in percussion from the institution years later. Molly sometimes performs with her father and her stepmother, Teresa Reilly. However, she is more focused on culinary work.
Mia Yeh’s sister uses her Instagram page to post some of her work and show people how to make some dishes. She has written cookbooks, including Molly on the Range: Recipes and Stories from An Unlikely Life on a Farm, for which she won IACP Cookbook Award.
Molly started hosting Girl Meets Farm, a cooking show on Food Network in 2018, which she still hosts. Given her passion for cooking, Mia’s sister started her restaurant called Bernie’s in East Grand Forks. Molly is muti-talented and co-hosted a podcast called From the Top in 2018.
Mia is not on social media platforms; no accounts affiliated with her have been found on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. However, her older sister is active on Instagram and uses her account to market her work.
