The Beartones (Missouri State University's premier all-male a cappella group) were conceptualized in 2000 under the frameworks of musical excellence, brotherhood and just having a good time. For more than a decade The Beartones have consistently thrilled audiences of all shapes and sizes. The group is renowned for their “polished” and “memorable” sets while racking up numerous notable performances across the country, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Memphis, Chicago, and New York City. They frequently compete in the ICCA (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella) and have consistently placed in both the Quarterfinal and Semifinal rounds. Recent awards include "Best Vocal Percussion", "Best Arrangement", and "Outstanding Choreography". In 2009, the group took first place at both their Quarterfinal and Semifinal rounds and moved on to compete in New York City where they received 3rd place at Finals. In 2017, The Beartones placed first in the Midwest Quarterfinal and 2nd at the Midwest Semifinal.
