The Penn Sirens perform a vast array of engaging and diverse music -- a repertoire that consists of styles ranging from traditional choral, jazz, and Broadway to contemporary pop and rock. Sirens is an ensemble that prides itself in captivating audiences with originally choreographed dances and self-directed scenes. On campus, each semester culminates with a student-written, Broadway-style production. Currently composed of 15 talented young women, the Penn Sirens perform at the University and around greater Philadelphia.
The Penn Sirens was founded in 2011 with the encouragement of the Penn Women's Center and Harnwell College House's Dean, Dr. Suhnne Ahn. Since its inception, the Penn Sirens and its network of early support endeavor to give young women at the University of Pennsylvania the same opportunities for artistic expression, performance excellence and leadership, as well as musical community that is already afforded to young men on campus by the University of Pennsylvania Glee Club. The Penn Sirens continue to grow as an organization, maintaining close ties with its brother group, the Penn Glee Club. The Penn Sirens aspire to give its musicians and technical members every opportunity to share their talents with communities both near and far.
