JESSHEIM: Alexander Rybak presented, with the clever soloists and chorists from Nannestad Culture-school, a musical performance packed with energy – and a good message.
– I am looking forward to the show a lot,- says Ida Hermansen. She has brought her mother Maria with her and, together with 250 others, she experienced the skilled culture school pupils and an Alexander Rybak on full steam in an exciting musical teamwork at Ullensaker Culture House.
Rybak as an Idol
The plot of the play is that thieves have stolen all the colours of the village and the citizens are beginning to lose hope and courage. But under every grey surface, bright colours will shine among the people and a rescue is always close.
– I actually came here, mostly to see Alexander Rybak – says Martin Kitti, who watched the last performance of the evening.– It was a great experience! Rybak is a very good violinist. I have, myself, recorded a CD with violin-music and Rybak is my big idol,- says Martin.
