Prepare for an unforgettable musical journey as BREC presents “Tender is the Night” featuring Abbe May and Dan Howls, alongside the Tender String Quartet in The Cube Theatre.

This groundbreaking show brings together the soulful melodies of local singer-songwriters with the exquisite arrangements of classical string instruments, promising an evening of unparalleled magic and emotion. Originating from a humble backyard gig in Wembley, “Tender is the Night” commissions WA composers to reimagine the songs of local artists, resulting in live, unrehearsed performances with the Tender Strings Quartet, featuring members of prestigious orchestras like WASO and PSO.

Abbe May, a true icon of the Australian music scene, headlines this extraordinary event.

With a career spanning gritty rock venues to global acclaim, Abbe’s dynamic blend of rock, blues, and electronica is set to ignite the stage. A champion of the LGBTQIA+ community, Abbe’s influence extends far beyond her music, earning her over 40 award nominations and 27 wins. From sharing stages with legends like The Black Keys to commercial success with hits like “Mammalian Locomotion,” Abbe’s talent and resilience shine through, culminating in her fifth studio album, “FRUIT,” a powerful testament to identity and acceptance.

Join us at BREC for a night of unparalleled energy and passion as Abbe May and Dan Howls take center stage, accompanied by the mesmerizing sounds of the Tender Strings Quartet.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience the raw emotion and captivating performances that define “Tender is the Night.”
