Caroline Zhang debuted a new FS (to Puccini's Turandot, choreographed by David Wilson) and Vanessa Lam debuted a new short program (to "The Gadfly" by Shostakovich) and free skate (to The Artist film soundtrack), both choreographed by her coach, Dianne DeLeeuw-Chapman, at the Hidden Valley Open club competition this weekend - see this thread for more info and video links: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...-club-comps%29

Dianne DeLeeuw? How lovely. I didn't know she was coaching a senior skater. I remember her battle with Dorothy Hamill for the 1976 OGM. She was the incumbent world champion at the time, I believe. I'm so glad she's remained in skating.
Dianne has coached Vanessa with her husband Doug Chapman for many years. She has also coached a past Juvenile National Champion and they have several So Cal up and comers including So Cal Interclub series leader Intermediate Vanna Giang (and sister Victoria in 2nd) and a Novice contender.

"Here's my music update: SP: "La Califfa" LP: "King Arthur"& "Troy". Choreo by Karen Kwan and Peter Oppegard. Debuting at LA Open. Happy 7/11"
11:42 AM - 11 Jul 12
Per IN article on David Wilson's choreography:
- New SP by Wilson: Sex and the City 2 soundtrack. "It has a Middle Eastern vibe to it," she said. "... It's different than what I've done."
- Zawadzki will be keeping her "Rhapsody in Blue" free skate, which was choreographed by Scott Brown. "It's the same music, but we have a bit of a different cut in some sections. I have new choreography and different jumps -- I have a triple Lutz-triple toe in there now, and my double Axel-triple toe is later in the program."
- New SP by Wilson: "Grand Guignol" by Bajofondo.
- Ten plans to keep last season's long program, set to the soundtrack of Il Postino, since he got to compete it only four times.
His first competition will be Glacier Falls in August.
- New SP by Wilson: "a piece of music from Les Miserables, and I don't think anyone's ever skated to it," Cassar told us. "We ended up using two pieces and we made it into a short program." Cassar said that after an up-tempo opening, the majority of the program will be adagio.
- Cassar is planning to keep his free skate from last season.

Harrison Choate's (Latin medley) SP music is "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" and "Mambo Jambo" by Perez Prado and his FS is to "Slaughter on 10th Avenue."
I'll post more music additions for the 2012 Broadmoor Open skaters later.

My apologies; it's been a busy month here in SE CT.
I don't know the source of this (and maybe it's incorrect), but people on russian forums say that programs of Javier Fernandez are: SP - Zorro, LP - Chaplin.
