''Something's Coming'' by Bernstein

  • The song is written in 3/4 but feels like 6/8 - in the piano part, the left hand plays three crotchets while the right hand plays the quavers as if it's in 6/8.
  • Solo for Tony, Tony has to been a Tennar to sing it. 
  • The piece uses Push Rhythms - make you feel like the piece is going faster.

  • Juliet - Maria

''Something's Coming'' is the solo song for Tony. To sing this song the part of Tony has to be a Tennar singer. Not a Bass or an Alto, a Tennar.
