The Pennchants is Penn’s premier all-male a cappella group focused on revolutionizing the a cappella scene by experimenting with the conventional dress codes, pop arrangements, and stage formations of the genre. Formed in 1989 by a group of men from the Penn Glee Club tired of barbershop and musical theatre performances, The Pennchants burst onto the Penn musical scene with energy and original style and won the inter-Penn a cappella group competition in its first year. Since then, the Pennchants have toured several countries and drawn praise for inventive arrangements and innovative choreography. A professional group that balances touring, recording, and performing at numerous venues throughout Philadelphia, The Pennchants have earned widespread recognition as a group that brings fresh energy to the genre of a cappella.
