Fond greetings to Stacey Darais, who joined the Performing Arts Management (PAM) team as the new office manager in the fall of 2021. After taking a 35-year hiatus from BYU, Darais graduated with her bachelor of arts in music with an emphasis in voice in December 2021. While challenging at times for her to juggle the demands of family, church, work, and school, she cherishes the knowledge she gained and the relationships she forged with fellow musicians.
Darais most recently worked in the airline industry for 12 years, focusing her efforts on customer service. She embarked on this particular career path because of her love of travel, but she stayed for the people. During her tenure at JetBlue Airways, she worked with social media, customer recovery, and communications, and she also supervised teams of writers and reservation agents.
Passionate about music from a young age, Darais played the piano, clarinet, and alto saxophone and sang in choirs throughout her public-school years. She was a member of the BYU Concert Choir during its inaugural year in 1984, and she is currently a first alto section leader in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and serves on the choir’s social committee. Her position at PAM is the perfect merging of her travel industry skills, musical talents, and education, and she is thrilled to be part of the BYU performing arts family.
Darais enjoys reading, going on road trips, taking bubble baths, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Damon, have four children and nine grandchildren.
