Monica Pendergast is University School's middle and high school choir director. She received her Master’s in Music Education and her Bachelor’s in Music Education with a Choral Emphasis from Florida State University. While in Florida, Monica taught elementary and middle school choir and guitar. Her students performed in top-auditioned ensembles, both at the local and state levels, and choirs under her direction consistently received high ratings at district choral performance evaluations. From 2015 to 2018, Monica was the program coordinator for the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (a K-6 arts integration organization in Utah) at Weber State University. She also served as the assistant director for the Salt Lake Symphonic Choir and was an active vocal solo and choral adjudicator in Central Utah.
