About Us

Heart of the Island
is a women's acapella chorus based in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  Over 80% of our membership reside in the Nanaimo area, with a few members coming from as far south as Ladysmith and as far north as Qualicum Beach.

We are proud to be part of the Canadian Maple Leaf Region 26 of Sweet Adelines International that include choruses from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon.

Join Us!

Radiate your passion for singing and become a part of something extraordinary!

Our chorus is an amazing group of real women, singing real harmony and having real fun today!  We invite women to experience the enrichment their lives receive by realizing their full singing potential.  You'll be amazed by the unlimited opportunities and once-in-a-lifetime experiences you will find as a member.  

All parts are open: Bass, Baritone, Lead and Tenor. You don't need to be able to read music, but you do need a good ear for it!
