Happy 27th Birthday, Alexander Rybak! :)

One more year has passed and we have followed Alexander’s path in his career during this time. Now it’s time to remember what all Alexander has accomplished. It’s impressive how much this guy is able to do in just 365 days:)

Here is a video containing all the memorable moments of Alexander’s 26th year of life! Many creative people participated in the creation of this video, all of the names are listed at the end of the movie;)

Enjoy watching it!


Here is the video documentary of what you have done for the whole year since you turned 25 to the present day:) We tried to gather all we could, all the happenings: concerts, performance at the various events and TV-shows, Meet&Greets and many, many other things you managed to do during this “calm” year!;) Why calm? Because you announced you were going to take it calmer this year and finish your study. Yeah, right! Here you can see how calm this year was for you and…for us! Because the more you work – the more work for us!:)) But that is just great! Keep rolling, fiddler! And we’ll keep working for you!:-)


Yours Facebookies

A letter from South-Africa. Valdres Summersymphony Newsletter aug.19th 2010

If you don´t know,  Sityhilelo is 15-year-old boy from South-Africa, who got the chance, to travel to Norway and participate in Valdres Summersymphony, june 2010, because of a birthday-present to Alexander Rybak from his fans and friends. Read more in this link:

A letter from South-Africa

We arrived safely on Wednesday the 6th and the trip back was great! I’m writing you this letter in remembrance of the great time I had in Norway, the people were warm, the food was great, the weather was wonderful and the 5 star service. I met new friends and I miss them already and we promised each other to meet again next year, hopefully! And my best friend Carl gave me a USB stick with all my favoured music in it and he also wrote a goodbye letter for me and got all the Woodwind players to sign it, that was very kind of him.

I learned a lot in the Valdres Sommersymfoni because the commitment those students have when we rehearsed in the orchestra and when they play their solo’s it’s inspiring and the standard of playing those children have is what we are not used to in South Africa, and I got an amazing masterclass from Frederick the clarinettist who was his idea to donate the clarinet to me.

I was so shocked I almost cried, it was so unexpected. I wish you guys a wonderful year and I hope to be back next year and thank you for the new clarinet it’s amazing. Thank you very much guys for the great times we shared together may this connection/relationship amongst us grow from strength to strength.

Best wishes to all

Yours Thankfully

Sityhilelo Gwenxanea

Welcome, Sityhilelo! From friends and fans of Alexander Rybak! June 26th 2010

In April and May, 2010, friends and fans of Alexander Rybak from his official Facebook-page, decided to work together and make a special birthday-present for his 24-years birthday, May 13th.

Painting: Ingegerd Claesson

By creativity, translations, paintings, video-makings, photoshop, e-mails and, of course, Facebook!!! and with help from Valdres Summer Symphony, we made people, from allover the world, send donations for the Valdres-project


The result, more than 20.000 Nkr is now paying for the costs and travel-expenses, for a 15-year-old clarinettist, Sityhilelo, who lives in Cape Town, South-Africa. Because of this money he will come to Valdres, Norway, on june 28th, with his teacher and co-students, to take part in the musical education, networking and cultural meeting of “Playing For the Future”.

On behalf of all the donators, we wish Sityhilelo a happy stay!! Alexander will be in Valdres, welcoming him and his friends on monday june, 28th and we hope  they will have a really good time!!

(watercolor by the FaceBookie Ingegerd)

OK, for those who missed what it is about:

Alex has birthday on May 13th and we decided to support a charity project which gives children all over the world a chance to learn an instrument. It’s called “Playing for a Future” and is run by Valdres Sommersymfoni, which is a music school in Norway. The music school has opened an account for us and we are sending money to it until May 12th. On May 13th, Valdres Sommersymfoni is going to tell Alex about his present and tell us how much we raised.

How is that a present for Alex, you are asking yourself?

Well, it really simple! It’s like math … the circle of life … a formula of happiness:

The fiddler was born -> the music changed his life and made his dreams come true -> the fiddler makes music -> that makes us very happy -> we want to share this happiness with more people and children and make their dreams come true -> the kids in poor countries who have never ever heard of Alexander Rybak and do not knew about his existence will get an opportunity to become professional musicians and an alternative to a life in poverty BECAUSE OF ALEXANDER RYBAK -> that will make them happy -> which will make Alex happy BECAUSE HE MADE THIS WORLD BETTER BY JUST BEING HERE !!! And we will let him know that on his birthday!

You are nodding and smiling. 🙂 I see that you agree with me!

More information and me rambling about it:

“The Perfect Birthday Present For The Fiddler”

Hello dear friends!

As you know, Alexander’s birthday is just around the corner. We have been thinking for quite some time now of what we could give him as a present. What could you possibly give a young guy who seems to have it all and more?

Alexander once said that the reason he makes music is because he wants to see people smile. He achieved it with us: Since we have been listening to him telling us his “Fairytales” with songs, fiddle and Frikar, we got happier (a bit too much for our neighbors, one might say ;))

Fact is, he made a change!


So what we can give Alexander Rybak for his 24th birthday is more people and children smiling back at him. More people being thankful for his existence, thankful for his participation in Eurovision Song Contest 2009, thankful for writing and sharing his “Fairytale” with the world, (thankful for making a page on facebook) – thankful for making their own fairytales come true!

Ladies and gentlemen !

Hereby, we officially announce the start of the project

“The Perfect Birthday Present For The Fiddler”!

We believe that it would be a perfect present for Alexander to collect money for a charity project that is close to his heart!

From today’s day until May 12th 2010 (one day before Alexander Rybak’s birthday), we (the audience and fans of Alexander Rybak) are DONATING and are trying to RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE for a very special project running by “Valdres Sommersymfoni” in Norway – the project is called “PLAYING FOR THE FUTURE”.

“Valdres Sommersymfoni” is an international, distinguished summer school of classical music for children and teenagers. But “Valdres Sommersymfoni” is also much more than that! The school created a fund and organizes big concerts festivals with famous Norwegian performers (and Alexander Rybak is one of them) to raise money for their charity project “Playing for a Future”.

The money that they raise with the concert festivals makes it possible for Valdres summer school to give underprivileged children whose parents can’t afford the tuition fee and the travelling costs a scholarship. Thus the young musicians have the opportunity to play with the “Playing for a Future” symphony and receive training in the summer school.

Moreover, the summer school supports music education projects in poor countries. As a first project, they cooperated with the “Redefine Western Cape Project” in Cape Town (South Africa). The project, led by Ronnie Saamai, collects children from poor areas in and around the city. The children receive free training on an instrument. Ronnie Saamai, South Africa’s foremost violin teacher has dedicated his life to helping children and puts countless hours into working with the children.

This year, the project will be extended to Palestina, Jordan, Vietnam and Brazil.

By giving underprivileged children a musical education, providing them with music instruments and making it possible for them to get to know and spend time with famous professional intsrumentalists, “Valdres Sommersymfoni” gives those children an alternative to a life in poverty and a hope for a better and brighter future.

Last year, in 2009,  after his victory at the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow and at the peak of his popularity Europe-wide, Alexander Rybak came to Valdres to be the ambassador for “Playing for a Future”. He performed together with symphony of young musicians at the festival which raised more money because people came to hear him. This year, the fiddler is coming again to Valdres – to do good.

And we want to do good, as well – because music makes a change!

We are over 68 000 people on Alexander Rybak’s Official Facebook Page.

If each of us donated just 1 euro, we would make a difference today!

Let’s give Alexander the gift of a child’s smile, whose fairytale came true because he is here and because we helped!


If you want to help, please send money (no matter how little, but more is even better and cordially welcomed) until May 12th to the following account.* On May 13th, Valdres Sommersymfoni is going to inform Alexander and us about how much we raised:

Account-holder: Nor-Aurdal kommune (municipality)

The Perfect Birthday Present to the Fiddler (translation to Slovak)

Milí priatelia!

Ako iste viete, Alexandrove narodeniny pomaly klopú na dvere. Už nejaký čas sme rozmýšľali, aký darček by sme mu mohli prichystať. Čo dať mladému chlapcovi, ktorý má hádam viac ako všetko?

Alexander raz povedal, že dôvodom prečo sa venuje hudbe je: pretože chcem vidieť ľudí usmievať sa. U nás sa mu to podarilo. Odkedy počúvame, ako nám prostredníctvom piesní, tónov svojich huslí a za sprievodu tanečníkov z Frikar rozpráva svoje „Rozprávky“, sme šťastnejší – až príliš, ako by sa mohlo zdať našim susedom 😉
