I've Got You Under My Skin

​​Penn Jazz is the premiere jazz big band at the University of Pennsylvania. Penn Jazz is entirely student-run and led with the assistance of musical director Dean Schweiger. From smaller trios and quartets to full band performances, Penn Jazz has proudly served the Philadelphia and Penn area for over 40 years. In addition to our bi-annual concerts, Penn Jazz has performed with various jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, the Count Basie Orchestra, Wynton Marsalis, and Christian McBride.
