    Vocals are NOT allowed for singles and Pairs skaters, only ice dance. So there won't be singing in Yu-Na's program.

    Uh-hu! Great job, Sylvia!!!

    Some considerations on the Senior GP competitors (because I think I won't be able to watch the programs of the B and C skaters)

    IMO, the interesting choices are these

    Fabulous list, Sylvia. I could comment on each one. No time at the moment.

    I'm not so sure about how well suited "The Scorcerer's Apprentice' will be for Bebe, but whatever the 'Yellow River Concerto' is, with Lori and Branden, choreographing, it has to be great. btw, is this a Chinese composition about the Yalu River?

    Sylvia thanks for the update!

    Caroline is using the Schubert Ave Maria --- I prefer the Gounod version, but I'm sure shw would be lovely skating to either.

    Thanks Herm. I think Bebe will do well with this music. Never saw that skate of Michelle. How high she jumped in those days! Of coursse the lyricism in her skating was already there.

    Here is some interesting information about the Yellow River (Huang Ho) piano concerto. It was banned during the Chinese "cultural revolution" for being too Western.

    Thanks for the detailed update, Sylvia. I can't wait to see some of these - really can't wait to hear the cut from Kill Bill II and see what Brooke and Ben do with it.

    yeah, I can picture Bebe skating to that. I somtimes wish that bebe would pick slower music... maybe she is rushing too much and that is why she always messes up in the long. it is hard to skate to fast music for four minuites!!

    Thanks Sylvia for doing all the work that i was going to do. So glad the hear that Castile and Olkoski are using Sherezade. great music... a warhorse i know.... but ican;t help it.

    I must say i am dissipointed with Inouoe and Baldwins choices. I feel that they do not challange themselves at all with diffrent choices each year, and thier freeskates all pretty much look alike. Wagner does not sound very promising. The only porgram that i thought was pretty new and good was the modern firebird number a few years ago. Lately they have been doing classical medelys... blue costumes. i feel that they need somthing more challanging. Opinions?


    also... Kimmie has choosen the feeling begins for her SP music.... not sure about how that will work. I love the music but i don't feel that kimmie could really live up to it and give the drama and passion that you hear in the music.
