Saturday Night at NGV
The Panics

Sat 8 Jul, 6pm–10pm
NGV International

Celebrate the closing weekend of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition with a special Saturday Night at NGV event. Take the final opportunity to experience Van Gogh and the Seasons after-hours, enjoy a classical string quartet recital, drop-in to exhibition talks, grab a bite to eat and wrap up your night with an exclusive live performance by The Panics.

Doors open 6pm. Headline act from 8.30pm

Music critics and fans often say the same thing about The Panics: listening to their songs is like immersing yourself in the soundtrack to your own life. Underneath the elegant pop-rock tracks are modern hymns for a generation, anthems of rash joy and quiet heartbreak. The Panics formed in the hills of Perth and their poetic celebrations of the Australian landscape have offered some of the finest music to emerge in recent times from one of Australia’s most important bands. Most recently, The Panics wrote, performed and produced the soundtrack to ‘Girt by sea’ a film screened on ABC.

Alto Strings’ warm-toned and beautifully blended performances leave their audiences mesmerised and engaged. Alto Strings have performed with the Melbourne, Adelaide, Tasmanian & West Australian Symphony Orchestras including performances working with the late great Pavarotti, Harry Connick Jnr, KD Lang, Katy Perry, Hugh Jackman and Roberta Flack. Alto Strings are graduates of the Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne.
