‎29 sep 2012 Meet&Greet in Kiev, Ukraine

What a day!
Well, I’ve been thinking all the time, how lucky we are!  Alex so often comes to Ukraine and we have an opportunity to meet him again!
I knew from FB that Alex came to Kiev on shooting. So when I went to work on saturday morning I brought my old camera. Thanks to Yana and Julia, the meeting was held in a small, cozy cafe near the hotel “Riviera” where Alex usually stays.
It’s tradition to come to meeting with gifts. When we were discussing gifts, I offered to give him a picture from all of us. I worked to 8, and then I decided to take a taxi, pick up the picture from home and then fly to the cafe.

Report & Video: Meet & Greet with Alexander Rybak and fans in Kiev. Sept.29th 2012. Facebookies reporting

Report by Julia Bezbakh

Short report from yesterday’s meeting in Kiev:) I was celebrating my Bday with relatives when I got sms from Yana. I think it was something around 16.00, she told she reserved time for M&G at 20.00. I had to gather fans. That was a disaster, because I was far away, and my phone was dying and I knew how many complaints we’ll get from Ukrainians who don’t live in Kiev. That was tough even for Kiev citizens, but fortunately I have a great team of Ukrainian Facebookies who helped me to arrange everything. Also many thanks to Marianne Mata Hari Saietz for fast reacting and making an event post at the main wall immediately after I asked her.

We gathered around 20-25 people there. Girls from Ukrainian Team Facebookies went to that street and found the place, but that was not so easy to make them put tables together, many restaurants refused to do it, so this is why we couldn’t tell people the exact place in advance. I was happy to see many familiar faces and also some very new. All new ones came thanks to the wall posting:)

The arcitectonic village-treasure, the Church-building, which has influenced life in Sør-Fron for the last two and a quarter of a centuries, made the most perfect setting for this masterly concert-experience, which was only set up once on the occasion of the Peer Gynt Festival 2012.

With several of the best artists of Norway gathered in the same church-room, the expectations, of course, reached the ceiling.

Thursday 5th July

Mum and dad drove me to Birmingham late at night, I was so excited, I actually exploded (At least, that’s what dad blamed the nosebleed on!) Lillian picked me up from there, and I said goodbye to my parents before we embarked on an all night long trip to John Lennon airport where to my amusement there was actually a yellow Submarine… We had a cup of tea and a doze before meeting Anni and Dave at about 5am. Currently lacking sleep and over excited – funny combination!

 

I can see Norway!!!

We got to Torp at about half Nine, I decided that Norway looks like someone put a country in a blender with all the islands and what not, but so pretty and awesome!  After a short train vs. taxi dispute, we chose the latter.

Summer Adventure for girls choir.

If there was one thing we learned when Alexander Rybak gave a concert together with our choir, it was that he liked what we did.
And it did not take long before we again had contact with him. This time it was a reunion.
The idea was summer idyll, barbecue and singing in the archipelago (skjærgården), and that’s nearly how it was.
15 July, a little bit tired Alexander, came to Jomfruland with his violin hanging over his shoulder.

 What to do in the holidays? Alexander Rybak recommends to readers of Puaro.lv and Ligo guide

In an interview at Puaro.lv Belarusian born,  Norwegian musician Alexander Rybak, who three years ago won the Eurovision song contest with the song “Fairytale”, tells the story of his holiday habits, as well as advices on how to spend the weekends.

Recently the singer visited Latvia to attend the Mihail Kazinik concert “Fathers and sons”. Somebody has been asking – “Didn’t the weather seem too cold for the singer?”, but he just says “Not at all! In Norway it is much  worse than here. Two weeks ago it even snowed there!” he reassured.  “I feel very welcomed in Latvia. Unlike residents of other countries, you have the habit of showing your grace first, instead of waiting for someone to bless you.”
