CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) – Mocking Birds are known for the ability to mimic songs. And that goes no different for UTC student A cappella group, The Mocking Birds.

UTC student Sidney Toney started the group in the fall of 2011. The group is comprised of ten members.

Most members come from a musical background. President Whitney Gonyea, Vice President Melody Shenkman, and Secretary Caitlyn Krueger were all a part of their high schools’ choirs as well as other small musical groups that led the way for them to join The Mocking Birds.

All three say the have deep passion and appreciation for singing.

The musical group performs a variety of tunes from artists ranging from Taylor Swift to the jazzy melodies of Michael Buble says, Shenkman.


Gonyea says, “We are all a bunch of different individuals and we come together. We all sound really great and we have a lot fun.”

The Mocking Birds next performance will be at UTC’s annual Greek Show later this spring.
