Gerry Hebert has performed and taught for 25 years here in Alberta and has many performance credits, including appearances with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Calgary Jazz Orchestra, many theatre productions, and played in over 25 CD recordings plus numerous TV and radio broadcasts. He studied music in Paris, the Banff Centre, and U of C. His quartet of professional musicians with stellar reputations are all strong advocates for the live music scene in Alberta. Johanna Sillanpaa is a highly acclaimed Swedish-born artist, now living in Alberta. There's a vibrant colour in her voice, and her vocals are expertly clear, gently raw, and intensely bold. She has performed across North America and in front of the 60,000 plus crowd at the Montreal Jazz Festival. She has recorded 4 albums and been nominated for Best Female Vocalist at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
The 'On The Edge' Concert Series is a non-profit community program of Red Deer Lake United Church in southwest Calgary. Our mission is to host quality live musical acts at an affordable price for music lovers in Calgary and the surrounding Foothills communities. We strive to bring to our stage a variety of entertainment and musical genres that will appeal to a diverse audience. We are especially proud to showcase Alberta and Canadian talent, but may at times bring in acts from the USA.
The 'On The Edge' Concert Series uses the church sanctuary, which doubles as our concert hall, with seating for up to 300 people on a first come, first-seated basis. We have an exceptional venue with padded seating, excellent acoustics and a first class sound system. We are wheelchair accessible and a non-smoking environment.
Before our evening concerts, we usually offer a light supper including coffee, tea and pop, plus Chapman's ice cream bars. These refreshments (excluding the light supper features) are also available at intermission.
