Postponed!!! – The House That Music Built- Alexander in Nashville

THE CONCERT IN NASHVILLE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO FALL. 

 

Hello, USA!

On January 25th, 2015 Alexander is participating in The House That Music Built, a benefit concert to support Habitat For Humanity of Greater Nashville.  He  will be appearing alongside a choir of over 250 people, a full orchestra, and local and international artists.  Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the belief that every person should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live.

It’s always a pleasure to have him stateside (pictured above with Solveig Leithaug during their concert in Nashville last year), and this is a great opportunity to experience a varied evening of musical stylings and support a worthy cause. Tickets can be purchased here.

This comes really late but here is my report of the concert in Göteborg. We arrived to Gothemburg about 1 hour late. Never count on SJ to be on time… I decided it was no idea to go to the hotel and instead I hurried to the info to get a map over the town, It was my time in Gothemburg not spent at the station. The girl at the info heard I was from Stockholm and asked what I was doing in Gothemburg. I told her about the concert, she had no clue who Alexander was, but told me to enjoy it. I got to the place I thought was the concert hall but wondered if I was right.

Came. Performed. Conquered.

The most Belarusian Norwegian, Alexander Rybak, arrived in Minsk again. Yesterday afternoon the winner of “Eurovision- 2009” found a few hours in his busy schedule to talk with young singers and musicians. The charming artist was met by the auditorium of the university of culture not just with applause, but with a standing ovation. Rybak willingly posed in front of cameras, gave advice and answered the most tricky questions. There was no hint of a star disease – anyone could get an autograph and a picture with the idol.

“Battle of Choirs”: A. Rybak (photo by Eve Budzeikaitės)

The European charmer Alexander Rybak shies away from the world of entertainment: to become a hostage to money – it is awful.

The winner of Eurovision 2009, Alexander Rybak, has no chance to relax from the marathon of television shows and pop concerts following his success. During recent years he has had more than 100 performances per year! But at the Christopher Summer Festival the guy will reveal his lesser-known talents…

“First and foremost I am a composer, then a violinist and a pop singer”,- the Eurovision star who lives in Norway has said repeatedly. Alexander Rybak’s upcoming concert in Vilnius will make sure of that, because the guest promises to perform violin classics and his own compositions with the St. Christopher Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Professor Donato Katkaus.
