How can you make your heart sing? Come to the Heartbeat concert! Heartbeat is an eight-woman a cappella group, and they will perform their new upbeat “Live as One” concert that is both an upbeat and intimate concert which will include folk songs, pop songs, bluegrass, jazz and foreign folk songs.
Their new “Live as One” concert series is inspired by a line from John Lennon’s “Imagine.” They will be performing songs from around the globe—Japan, Bulgaria, Estonia, Tanzania, Ecuador, the UK, the US, India and many more.
The group, singing together in Telluride since 1994, has opened the Bluegrass Festival and the Telluride Jazz Celebration, toured to the Blue Sage Theater in Paonia, the Art Center in Moab, and the Sand Island Bluegrass Festival in Bluff, Utah. After the opening performance of their “Live As One” program in Telluride last year, its popularity has taken them back to Moab, the Sherbino in Ridgway, The Creamery in Hotchkiss, and the Radio Room in Grand Junction. “But some of our favorite concerts have been the impromptu ones, such as the post office, the bike path tunnel, the stairwell at the elementary school and even standing in the Gunnison River singing to boaters,” says member Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer. “I think that part of what makes our concerts so much fun is that we have a lot of energy and spontaneity every time we perform. We’re up there having a great time making music.”
