The music starts off quietly before launching into the rollicking selections that always get the audience clapping/stomping! Jumps not Brown’s focus tonight – still managed 3A, 2A+3T, 3Lz-half loop-3S, 3F+2T, 3Lo. Deft bits of footwork in a FS that will grow!
He did two planned doubles – opening 2T (marking a possible 4T later in season) and a backwards catch foot spiral into 2Lutz in the second half (he omitted the 8th jump pass).

2nd was Lukas Kaugars 161.13 (101.75 FS) – his program music merges the soundtracks of Dracula and The Red Violin, and is choreographed by Tom Dickson.
3rd Sebastien Payannet 135.31 (87.18 FS).
