Sessions on the Ledge goes out with Holiday Extravaganza

(Photo by Raychel Johnson) Dylan Kim, an international student from South Korea, sang as part of the Holiday Extravaganza edition of Sessions on the Ledge. The weekly talent showcase is put on by the Center for Diversity and Unity.

The final Sessions on the Ledge of the fall semester was held yesterday in the Shepherd Union Atrium. “Holiday extravaganza” was the theme of the once-a-week talent performance. Sessions on the Ledge is put on by the Center for Diversity and Unity every Tuesday afternoon from 12-1 p.m.

Lola Moli, the Sessions on the Ledge chair, organized the event and played holiday songs on the piano as different students sang and accompanied her. Kelsey Capoferri and Mindy Chamberlin sang along to Moli playing the piano. Capoferri encouraged students in the Atrium to join in and sing along.

Dylan Kim, an international economics senior from South Korea, sang a love song to the applause of students passing by the ledge. Kim also plays the piano in the Wildcat Room and has performed at previous sessions.

Participants performed songs such as “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Jingle Bells.”

“We sang traditional Christmas carols and got excellent crowd participation,” Chamberlin said. “We recruited three soloists off the floor, who were great. There were a lot of children passing through the union who also stopped to sing along. It was a fun closure to a crazy semester.”
