Based out of Springfield, Missouri, The Beartones are Missouri State University's all-male a cappella group.
Founded in 2000, The Beartones have always been a group that's focused on musical excellence, brotherhood, and a shared passion for performing. The group is renowned for their “polished” and “memorable” sets while racking up numerous notable performances across the country, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, and New York City!
Currently, there are 12 members in The Beartones and they come from a myriad of backgrounds.
Just because we are a singing group, doesn't mean you have to be a music major to join!
Don't be fooled -- The Beartones have a competitive streak, too. They frequently compete in the ICCA (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella) and have consistently placed at both Quarterfinal and Semifinal rounds. Many times, they are fortunate enough to take home numerous accolades such as "Best Choreography" the past three years. In 2009, the group took first place at their Semifinal round and moved on to compete in New York City placing third Internationally! As of 2018, the group won their Midwest Semifinal yet again making them one of the top 10 international competing groups in 2018!
