We are a gold medal winning chorus of more than 70 women, based in and around the Stockport area of Greater Manchester, England. In May 2019, we were crowned regional champions in the Sweet Adelines Quartet of Nations competition, representing the United Kingdom and the Netherlands; the latest in a string of accolades for our close-knit chorus.
We are a diverse range of women: ages range from early teens to late 70s, coming from all walks of life - nurses; bookkeepers; radiographers; stay at home mums; grandmothers; lawyers; teachers and even a successful Tv and film make up artist and wig-maker! All members of the community are represented and in return, we try to give something back. With groups such as Music In Mind, where teams of chorus members take music into dementia care homes across Stockport and the surrounding area, we are proud to say that our members are increasingly finding ways of doing their bit for the local community.
We love to sing with passion, musicality and energy but fun and friendship are just as important to us as the music. Heartbeat sings a variety of acapella music including pop songs, show tunes, choral music, jazz and barbershop standards. Songs range from Queen's 'Somebody To Love' to Frank Sinatra's 'All the Way', from Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know' to the traditional American song 'Shenandoah'.
