In the lead: Instructor Alexander Rybak together with course attendee Ingrid Fuchen Røyne (13) from Fagernes. The young girl from Valdres doesn’t hide the fact that it`s fun having the well-known violinist and artist as an instructor. Rybak himself thinks it`s great being an inspiration to the next generation of strings and lets himself get inspired by their commitment and willingness to learn

 Great study days in Leira

Alexander Rybak is instructor and inspiration to over 40 young strings at Valdres Summer symphony.

Ingrid Fuchen Røyne thinks it`s a fairytale to have Alexander Rybak as an instructor during Valdres Summer symphony.

The 13 year old from Fagernes, who is the only person from Valdres in Rybak`s class isn`t the only one who thinks this. Together with over 40 other young strings, she pays attention and with a firm grip on violin and bow and listens for most of them to the well-known violinist and artist while he is instructing.

Rybak says this about Melodifestivalen

Held two concerts in Anderstorp hall.

260 students took part in the concerts, they came from the music school in Skellefteå, Umeå and Lycksele.

Those who watched Melodifestivalen know that Alexander  was also there, as a guest.Earlier there had been rumours that he would take part in some kind of interval act. He sounds a bit surpised when Norran asks about this.

-The Swedes are so good at making new music. They don’t need to recycle.

On the other hand he says he would like to make the interval act at Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

– I would like to do a performance with students, just like we have done now in Skellefteå, he says.

Alexander Rybak says his manager is very excited about this, and is thinking about contacting SVT.

So with other words: If a former Eurovision winner will do interval act it has to be better  than in a Swedish semi final.
