THE VENUE

Updated July 25, 2017

  • TICKLESS CLOCK

    Gallery House Concerts Society started with a demolished wall and a purchase of a swack of folding chairs! Now we can seat an audience of 60. Many more upgrades make Gallery House Concerts a superb auditory experience, for example, a tickless clock, 2 inches of insulation, 250 crochet chair booties, and toilet seats that don't slam!

  • WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?

    Avenue lists the Gallery. CBC Eyeopener grills the Gallery. Swerve tells it like it is. BeatRoute devulges secret and updates their readers.

  • WHAT TO EXPECT

    We host musical acts for an evening of great live music in our home. Often the performers will have another show near by in the same week and want to round out their schedule. see Images

    Doors open at 3pm if the concert falls on a Sunday and 7pm the rest of the week. You have 30 minutes to drop your coat, stash your stuff, and find a seat. Sometimes there is a local opener who plays 3-4 songs. After a 40 minute-set from the headliner, we break to meet the artist(s) and check out their CDs, t-shirts and what have you. From 'hello' to 'goodnight' the concert is about 3 hours.

    We ask that you remove outside foot wear and store them on the shelves provided. There are felt slippers available for your use. Throw coats on the bed at the end of the hall.

  • BYOB

    A small feature food item is available with a coin jar for donations. Please feel free to bring your favourite beverage and a snack plate to share. Coffee and tea are provided.

  • TICKETS AND YEARLY PASSES

    TICKETS - If you wish to be invited to our home, please click the Tickets button on our Home page. We will acknowledge with date, time, and location. If, three days before a concert, there are no tickets sold, the show may be canceled with the artist's permission. E-mail us with any questions.

    Space can fill up quickly. To guarantee your seat, payment must be received and acknowledged before the performance commences. Book on line, or call/text Jackie to make other arrangements 403 988-3106.

    Please do not ask if we can "comp" you a ticket. It is not our money to give away. If you are a friend or associate of the artist, or are attending to audition the artist, kindly contact the artist directly who will let us know that a donation will not be expected.

  • DOGS

    Although we do not have a dog ourselves, there is a dog that visits us quite frequently -- she is often in the backyard during a concert. Therefore we have a fenced yard that will contain all but very tiny dogs. If your dog plays well with others and enjoys staying outside, you are welcome to bring him/her. If you have an allergy to dogs, you may not be comfortable.

  • ETIQUETTE

    We encourage any concert attendee to intervene when the activity of another distracts the audience in any way. You are welcome to encourage that person to move to another room in the home away from the stage area. Shushing is allowed!

  • CHILDREN

    Above all, people come to Gallery House Concerts to listen. We welcome closely-supervised children. Children must be absolutely quiet or must be removed from the listening area (downstairs or outside). 12-and-under are free of charge when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. An adult donation is expected from those 13 and over.

  • NOT FOR PROFIT

    Gallery House Concerts was incorporated as a not-for-profit society on October 18, 2012. All proceeds go directly to the artists less a fund transfer fee if PayPal is used (about $1). Tickets are transferable but not refundable.

    FUND RAISING Occasionally we will organize a fund raising event or raffle to assist artists with travel expenses to other events.

  • LOCATION & PARKING

    Tons of parking on the street or in the alley.

    Home address will be confirmed when acknowledging your reservation.
