Heart of the Island chorus was chartered as a member of Sweet Adelines International in 1973 as Harbourview.  In 2002 the name was changed to Heart of the Island.  

The chorus has enjoyed this longevity through the dedicated members and talented directors.  Heart of the Island's repertoir includes many audience favourites such as The Beatles - In My Life,  and Brian Setzer's Stray Cat Strut,  to name a couple.
