Live music, dance and culture graces the Shepherd Union Building every Tuesday with Sessions on the Ledge. A program dedicated to showcasing diversity through talent, Sessions on the Ledge pushes to build diversity and community through artistic performances at Weber State University.
Valeria Torena, the recently appointed Sessions on the Ledge director, said she feels strongly about her work.
“The purpose of Sessions on the Ledge is to promote diversity at Weber State by having students and community members showcase their talents,” Torena said. “This promotes diversity by showing that we all come from different backgrounds and have something to share and express.”
Torena said she wants students to “come and enjoy Sessions on the Ledge, because it is something entertaining that they can enjoy during their class break. Sessions is also an opportunity to get to know a little bit of what the Diversity Center does.”
Torena also said she expects “musical, poetic, dance and cultural performances” in this year’s lineup, offering a variety of options for spectators and performers alike.
Sessions on the Ledge is held every Tuesday in the Shepherd Union Atrium in front of the Center for Diversity and Unity at 12–1 p.m. unless otherwise advertised. Students interested in auditioning can contact the CDU at 801-626-7243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
