    Campbell said he's still trying to decide between two different pieces for his new free skate; he plans to compete at Liberty this summer.

    Tarasova did it again. I think that Tatiana is really great with the short programs to be honest. SP's are loaded with tricks which tat is great at. Her free skates are not the best which as an ice dance coach shocks me. They are usually very end to end skating. I do agree that Mao has a good recipe with TAT for short and Lori for long.
    That wiki information is not correct.
    Kanako's SP was made by her coach Mihoko Higuchi.
    Tarasova made SP for Kanako last summer, but Kanako did not skate it.

    I don't know, I thought the "Ladies in Lavender" SP was really nice.

    Morricone has an astounding library of film scores. Many styles in one composer.

    Almost can't go wrong with him. "L'Arena" was a strong SP for a gorgeous US pair a few years ago - cannot recall names, they won the national title but had trouble with injuries.

    Brooke Castile and Ben Okolski - it was their SP in the 2007-08 season.

    International Figure Skating's Facebook page mentioned last week that "Daisuke Murakami and Kiira Korpi are also in Toronto this week working on new programs."

    Artur Gachinski and Liza Tuktamysheva are scheduled to fly to Canada on May 13 to have programs choreographed by David Wilson in Toronto - link to the earlier thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83478

    Richard must like the music and the song, perhaps. There isn't a lot of variation in the music, so the choreography will be make or break. It's his first choice of music so obviously he's trying it out and it's still early -- the new season is months away. Of course his selection is not your typical music for skating, but unless you've seen Richard's choreo and practices, or understand why he made the choice, why judge so harshly? In any case, we don't know which instrumental version he's chosen. I wish Richard fun, luck, success in the new season

    I'm wondering if he'll use the Vitamin String Quartet version. I think it's .

    I wonder which song.. it's polka.. 'The Lonely Goatherd?' I liked the Duschesnays' 1992 OSP to that.

I sure hope so because the Seb. Brittain numbers were not super with the exception of last years sp. I liked that.
    I adored his Charlie Chaplin program and think it really was his best program since Super Mario Bros. (lol, loved that one). Chaplin really worked for him.

    Speaking of Charlie Chaplin, I want someone to skate to the score for the awesome silent film that is The Artist. Most specifically, to the music from the movie's big dance number. Lots of amazing music in the movie (hence the reason it won the Oscar for best score).

    Dammit, whenever I go to that clip I have to rewatch it multiple times because I adore Jean Dujardin so damn much.

    ITA. I love that soundtrack and when I listen to it I always imagine someone skating to it.

    Lovely and interesting choice -- can't wait to see their skate

    ...
    I listened to several (but not all) of the tracks form this Score on youtube, and this track -- The Legend of the Pianist -- seems like an obvious choice for them as well from Morricone's "The Legend of 1900" score.:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcofL...eature=related .

    There's a lot going on with the score across different tracks... so it'll be very interesting to see what is peiced together for Paul/Islam. But the track above I can see really helping to showcase their line, stretch, and relationship to each other.

    There's a clearer - less obstructed - video of this program to date at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLefuG8LQC4 as well. Robert Mauti mentioned on facebook he created the program to meet the second week challenge of the "Young Artist Showcase" -- so this is in the choreography focused stage and not for competition -- but Wesley/coach liked it so much it will be worked into his IJS short program.

    Rochelle, thanks for posting the link to Robert Mauti's YAS3 video tribute to Alvin Ailey (Wesley Campbell's "Bolero" SP) -- the link is cross-posted in the Young Artists Showcase thread in GSD (post #12).

    Tiffany Vise ‏( @icetiff ) tweeted on May 13:
    So excited to be working with Phillip Mills this week on our new short program to the instrumental version "Open Arms" by Journey.
    I forgot to mention earlier that Richard Dornbush had tweeted on April 3, 2012:
    Choreography in Vancouver, I love it!
    I assume he was referring to his new SP choreographed to U2's "With Or Without You."

    New interview titled "Creating programs: Hugo Chouinard talks music": http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    The name Hugo Chouinard is well known among skaters, coaches and choreographers. The focus of his work is an integral and important part of figure skating: the music. Musical design is not just a job for Chouinard; it is a real passion, one through which he has completely devoted himself to the sport of figure skating.
    Chouinard was involved in Weaver/Poje's "Je Suis Malade" FD, Daisuke Takahashi's short program, Virtue/Moir's "Funny Face" FD, and Takahashi/Tran's "Concerto de Québec" FS, among other programs.

    Any relation to Josee Chouinard?

    Now that's an intriguing choice of choreographer for Rippon -- Michael Seibert is a former Stars on Ice tour choreographer and a 5-time U.S. National ice dance champion with Judy Blumberg.

    ETA: @dscclub also tweeted today that Denney/Coughlin are visiting Detroit Skating Club this week to work with choreographer Pasquale Camerlengo.
