    Fun SOI News!

    Just some background first.....LOL SOI was nominated back in July for an Emmy for their choreography work this past season (2002-03). Here is the page with who won that Emmy. It was announced this past weekend in LA (I think it was in LA, LOL).

    Congratulations to the SOI choreographers! I know SOI has been nominated for this award a few times before, but I think this is the first time they've ever won. I might be wrong, though...

    Actually, last year, the SLC Opening Ceremonies won this very same award (choreography) in addition to like five other Emmys (including one award that usually goes to the Academy Awards broadcast but I can't remember the name of it, its like Outstanding Special Event or something) which I thought was extremely cool. I am pretty sure that SOI has been nominated before but I have NO clue if they have ever won it before now. Hmmm, maybe I will look that up tomorrow night and find out the answer for y'all. :D

    Of course I could be wrong, but I have a very strong feeling that SOI was earlier nominated and also won the Emmy (must have been one of these years 1999-2001).

    Fun SOI News!

    I know Sandra Bezic's production of Carmen won an Emmy - Brian Orser and Katarina Witt both won.

    Big congrats to the choreographers. I wonder if the person who choreographed the "Elvis/Marilyn" program is on that list It was not my favorite number, in case you haven't guessed, though I love B&S's skating and it was nice to see them have fun with something--just not that particular piece. Probably one of those ideas that sounded great on paper.

    So is Sandra Bezic choreographing for SOI at all this season? I know Christopher Dean is the new artistic director and will be doing the bulk of the choreography, but I wonder if Sandra will choreograph any solos or duets or something like that? I think she's done some great stuff over the past 10 years (as long as I've seen it live). I thought "Four Corners," which they did in '98-99 was a very impressive foray into modern choreography with an adult theme. Also, I thought Bezic's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" for Kristi was brilliant. But that is a big show and a LOT of intricate choreography and I have no doubt it is one hell of a job keeping things fresh and creative year in and year out while both staying within the bounds of a largely conservative audience's taste and trying nudge the audience along to appreciate new things as well.

    I'm very curious to see what the show will be like with Scott Hamilton returning to consult and Chris Dean in charge artistically. I especially hope they do a great number for YUKA!
