The people in Valdres love Alexander Rybak. And the feelings are mutual.
– I’ve been here on Valdres Sommersymfoni since I was … well … 12 years, maybe? Says Alexander Rybak, who gathered a large audience for an outdoor concert in the centre of Fagernes.
Even in a hectic program, he found time for this concert at Fagernes. Rybak flew in from Ukraine the day before, played in Oslo, then Fagernes, and went straight from Fagernes to Moscow as the next destination.
Believe in your talent, and let it grow. If your dreams are to come true, you must first dare to dream.
– Alexander Rybak
