HARK! THE HERALD STUDENTS SINGUncategorized, by Catherine Higgins.
Kitty Wright loves the sounds of the season, so she invites young performers from schools and community groups to stop at the Calvin Rampton Complex Atrium to sing and play.
State employees have been treated to performances by children and teens during the last two weeks thanks to the work of Kitty Wright, long time employee and customer service expert at UDOT.
Kitty used to work at the Utah State Capitol building where performing groups visit during the holiday season. When her job location changed, she brought the idea with her.
“I used to send out invitations about mid-October, but after so many years doing this, the directors call me,” says Kitty.
The Calvin Rampton Complex works well for performers since the center of the building is an atrium that is open on each floor. Employees on break can watch from above and others can listen from work areas since the sound carries through the building.
To the performers, the floor levels above look balconies in a theater. ”They feel like they’re performing in an opera,” says Kitty.
“These young people are so talented and willing to perform their best numbers, and all for a smile and a clap of hands. The employees really look forward to each performance.”
Those of us who enjoyed the performances are grateful for Kitty’s efforts!
