    No magic! I watched the online version of SBS real time broadcast of Festa on Ice. Scott and Tessa skated between Takahashi's Swan Lake and Johnny Weir's number. The ballet program was basically the rearrangement of their usual movements to different concept and music with the prop(!). It had a clean and controlled quality that let the audience stop screaming and watch them 'skating.' Although they took the risk of understating themselves in a show filled with dramatic and cheesy numbers, I thought they displayed their strength rooted in ballet really well and their sibling-like partner relationship. It gave me an impression that they are very level-headed... They have a good sense of who they are and where they are. It was getting too late and I couldn't stay awake after Weir. However, I have to say I went to bed very satisfied

    As a matter of fact, their performance just came up online. Just click under the picture. Enjoy!

    Thank you Sylvia! I cannot wait to see Jeremy's programs for next year; I love his skating.

    Oh and I've read on fsuniverse that Wester/Baranstev's OD will be the 1940s. I see them doing very well with this.

    Oh yes, fantastic choices! I love the fact that he always has different styles for his short and long, and he always uses at least one classical piece and Albinoni is just great. I also adore him for using real music - and that's not supposed to sound snobby, I am just tired of all these soundtracks, modern pseudo-classical music etc. Now I can't wait to see Abbott's programs next season!

    Actually, one of my favorite programs of Abbott's is his SP to a piece from the "American Beauty" film soundtrack (2007 Four Continents performance, which is on youtube).

    Now I can't wait to see Abbott's programs next season!
    He's currently scheduled to compete in two club comps -- at the Broadmoor Open at the end of June and at Liberty in mid-July.

    W/B's FD music was originally posted in this thread -- here's the link to their official site where their 2008-09 music is published.

    Abott's choices are perfect. I am so happy that he chose great music again. his freeskate this past year had all my favorite waltzes in it and it was wonderfully choreographed.

    I am looking forward to seeing this young man skate this season. Lot's of talent there.

    Sylvia. Any news of Liberty?

    July 15-19 (Tue.-Sat.), 2008 at the IceWorks Skating Complex in Aston, PA (near Philly). It's too early for me to start a separate thread about which elite skaters are planning to compete at Liberty this year, but I can do so when I've compiled more info.

    Let's try and keep this thread on topic in the meantime.

    U.S. novice pairs champions Brynn Carman/Christopher Knierim (who will debut on the JGP this fall) have updated their official site with their junior program info:
    Short Program
    A Russian folkdance

    Free Skate
    "City Slickers" soundtrack (modified version of their novice program)
    ETA: C/K's scheduled summer comps, as listed on their site, are Broadmoor Open, Skate Detroit (the week after Liberty) and Indy Challenge in August.

    Reasons to go to Liberty: In addition to Jeremy Abbot, there is Carman/Kniernen, the Pairs Team that is bringing this discipline back to the US. Check out the Exhibitions of 2008 Nats. They are Good!

    There appears to be a rumor that S&S will use music from "Schindler's List" for their LP. I lurve the music from that movie, so a great choice in my book.
