Cougar Queries: "Follow Your Passion, Unless a Greater Passion Comes Along"

Cougar Queries is a series profiling BYU employees by asking them a few simple questions about their work, interests and life.

Name: Darrell Babidge
BYU employee since: 2007
My job at BYU is…Associate Professor of Voice

I’m currently working on…coaching a senior student who is singing at the Lincoln Center in New York and auditioning for the Metropolitan Opera.

I'm reading…nine journals about opera and classical music from England, Norway, Germany, France and the United States. 

My advice to graduating seniors is…continue to follow your passion, unless a greater passion comes along.

My favorite professor was…Susan Easton Black teaching Church History.

The best-kept BYU secret is…a hidden place in the Joseph F. Smith Building where I read during my lunch break.

I’ve hiked Y Mountain...one time.

I’d love to have dinner with…British singer/songwriter Kate Bush.
