What is Ten40

A Cappella?

Ten40 a cappella is a tenor/bass a cappella group affiliated with Bowling Green State University. Our purpose as musicians and performers is to spread the knowledge and joy that music can bring. We generally perform at events on campus, for charity, schools, and for private events. Our music crosses many genres such as current popular music, hits from past decades, barbershop, and choral works. Each year is ended with a tour during which we visit schools and communities around the state and act as teaching tools as well as positive entertainers.
