Darrell Babidge has appeared as featured soloist at Carnegie Hall in performances of Faure’s “Requiem” and Mozart’s “Coronation Mass.” He also performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the BBC Proms at Royal Albert Hall in London.

The singers will be assisted by BYU Philharmonic Orchestra members Julie Beistline, Gina Roper, John Kovalenko, Natasha Li and Joe Nibley, as well as BYU professors Christian Smith, Douglas Bush, Geralyn Giovanetti and Laurence Lowe.
