York musicians tour Europe over summer
ELMHURST – A pair of York High School students expected to learn new music and see new sights when they embarked on a month-long European music tour, but they didn’t expect to also form such strong bonds with their host families.
“I’m an only child, so I have no siblings, but each family I stayed [with] had an older host brother, or younger host sister, or something,” said Kayman Klaas, 15, who plays the clarinet.
The York sophomore spent roughly two days with each of his host families while he toured seven communities in Germany, France and Austria with the Blue Lake International Southern Winds. Host families greeted him and his bandmates while they unloaded their bus at each new stop, and from that first moment, Klaas felt like a member of the strangers’ households.
