Well done Koriallverda!
Sunday it was the premiere of what the Koriallverda had used the sumar holidays to practice on with their new director, Thomas Stanghelle. They were going to sing together with Alexander Rybak, the winner of “Eurovision Song Contest” in 2009 with the song “Fairytale”. The winner song and many others were performed in Evje church after a sneak premiere in Kristiansand Zoo somewhat earlier in the day. There is no doubt that there is a lot to build on in this choir! Still they need the new members, so if you are on the aged from eight grade and up and would like to join singing. Show up at Hornnes chapel on Tuesday from 18:00.

Rybak in great mood in Evje church!
Approximately 200 spectators in Evje Church Sunday experienced an Alexander Rybak in great mood, with the “Kor I all verda” as musical support.
The background for the concert with Alexander Rybak was the new conductor of “Kor I all verda”, Thomas Stanghelle. He is originally from Nesodden. There he met a five years little boy with a fiddle, the rest is history, as they say. Together Stanghelle and Rybak have done many musical projects. Now it was time for Setesdal.
It may be that many people think that Alexander Rybak is the song Fairytale and not more. That is very wrong. Sure enough it was with Fairytale he won the Grand Prix, but also other songs have become popular and sold well. Especially the performance of Europe Skies and Funny Little World, were powerful in Evje Church, with an artist who apparently was in top singing and playing mood this day. And Rybak also seemed very pleased with the support from the “Kor I all verda”, which had practiced backing vocals on several of his classics. The concert in Evje church was a musical upswing. The only sad thing was that the church was not fully packed.
