Garnet & Gold
The incredible Maria Calvo and I were hired by Florida State University—Republic of Panama (FSU Panama, Panama) to write a song for the Study Abroad program the university hosts every year. This is that song. We are beyond grateful to Florida State University—Republic of Panama, not only for this unique professional opportunity, but also for having been so good to us when we walked its halls as students.
A song is not a record until it’s recorded, and so we’re also grateful to Dr. Chandler Bridges, John Schell, and Andres Osorio from Florida State University—Tallahassee’s Commercial Music Department for producing and engineering our song into existence.
Last and most important—Go Noles! To Panama!
