Heartbeat Chorus

Heartbeat Chorus

Heartbeat Chorus


The spectacular, sparkly Heartbeat Chorus are the 2015 Sweet Adelines’ UK ladies’ barbershop champions. They represented the UK and Netherlands in the International Barbershop Competitions in Las Vegas and has approximately 70 members whose ages range from their early 20s to 80 years old. The ladies are from a diverse range of backgrounds, including lawyers, scientists, teachers and a wigmaker.

The chorus is under the direction of Master Director Nancy Kelsall, who has been in post for six years along with Assistant Director Emma Shanks from Buxton. 2017 marks the chorus’ 20th anniversary and they’ve come along way since starting up in 2007, where early rehearsals took place in a garage!

Heartbeat Chorus’ repertoire includes well known songs from musicals to more up to date numbers such as Somebody to Love and Africa.
