Rybak prepares a big concert.

They have rehearsed a lot at Øksneshallen on Friday and Saturday.

The violinist and promoter Ingmar Wåhlberg is very satisfied with the effort of the many people who have been at the rehearsals this weekend.

– We`re ca 100 people at the most, and today Saturday we`ve been working from 10 am till 5 pm. I`m convinced we`re very well prepared for tomorrow`s concert,- he says to VOL.

Emma Andreassen is one of the many young musicians who looks forward to playing together with the one and only Alexander Rybak.

– There are musicians here from 8 years old up to 80.The orchestra association normally has around 40-60 people, but this weekend we`re enforced with several junior musicians who now have the chance to try out their skills. Particularly for the youngest ones, it`s fun meeting a superstar like Alexander Rybak,- says Ingmar Wåhlberg.

The reason for the rehearsals is the concert on Sunday afternoon when Alexander Rybak will play with the Lofoten and Vesterålen Orkesterforening (LVO)

– The program on Sunday is split into three parts, one part that Rybak does with the orchestra. One part only with the orchestra and one part that Rybak does together with his pianist.
