What happens when you take some of Perth’s best contemporary musicians and pair them with local composers and a string quartet to reimagine their songs in the height of a global pandemic? Enter Perth’s latest innovative experience, Tender is the Night. Birthed by local multi-disciplinary artist, Leigh Gardiner, in collaboration with creative consultant and composer, Rebecca Erin Smith, Tender is the Night is a series of performances that bridge and blur the lines of classical and contemporary music.

A year after its humble debut in a suburban backyard, Tender is the Night will hold its first ever public edition at City of Melville Main Hall this Sunday, September 12. The fifth instalment of the series will feature the captivating three part harmonies of Simone & Girlfunkle with support from returning Tender is the Night artist Tanaya Harper, both accompanied by the Tender Strings quartet.

We’re thrilled to have 2 x double passes to give away to Tender is the Night this Sunday, September 12.

To WIN email us here at with TENDER IS THE NIGHT in the subject line, then tag the mate you will take in the Facebook post. Don’t forget to like the X-Press Facebook page and sign up to the newsletter to be in the running!

Competition closes Friday, September 10 at 5pm. You must be a WA resident and able to attend the event.
