A band like no other on the pop landscape, Why Don’t We brings together five supremely talented singer-songwriters who have each built up a passionate following all on their own. After crossing paths through a series of national tours in recent years, Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery decided to join together and deepen their powerful connection with fans around the world. And as shown on their debut single “Taking You,” Why Don’t We’s potent chemistry makes for undeniable pop perfection.

Atomic, the new album by Scottish experimental rock legends Mogwai, comprises reworked versions of the music recorded for the soundtrack to director Mark Cousins’s acclaimed documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise, which first aired on the BBC last summer.
Constructed with archival film footage, Atomic is an impressionistic kaleidoscope of the horrors of our nuclear times—protest marches, Cold War sabre-rattling, Chernobyl, and Fukushima—but also the sublime beauty of the atomic world, and how X-rays and MRI scans have improved human lives. Mogwai's soundtrack encapsulates the nightmare of the nuclear age, but its dreamlike qualities, too. It is the latest in the band's series of impressive soundtracks and scores, following acclaimed albums Les Revenants (The Returned) and Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait.

The Academic Affairs and Student Affairs offices at the Valencia campus welcome all students, faculty and staff to the "Fall (In Love With) Valencia - A Study Abroad Experience" concert featuring original songs composed by our Fall 2016 Study Abroad cohort while in Valencia this semester.
As we prepare for finals week and a very well-deserved holiday season straight after, this concert offers all of us the perfect, and possibly the last, opportunity to bid farewell to this genuinely talented group of students by listening to their musical recollections of a chapter in our lives that we all got to share with one another.
Don't miss this special chance to say thank you, good luck and "Hasta pronto" to our Fall 2016 Study Abroad students!
