Emily Stark told the Stryker Rotarians of her travels throughout Europe with the Ohio Ambassadors of Music. The three week tour took the group numbering 165 performers along with the chaperones into eight different countries. The group was able to visit many historical and famous places in addition to performing. The group performed both vocal as well as instrumental music. Emily told the group how she enjoyed visiting each of the places they visited, and noted the visit to a concentration camp in Germany was very sobering. Emily was able to participate in both band and choir which kept her especially busy during the trip. Emily auditioned for her spot on the tour after she had been referred by her High School Band Director. Emily pictured in the center is shown with her mother Deb on the right and her step father as well as Stryker Rotarian Rev. Dr. James Ernst.
