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.

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
PLAYING FOR A FUTURE.
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!!
