Motown Comes to Gleason

03/25/2013

A packed house in the Gleason Performing Arts Center paid enthusiastic tribute to the 50s sounds of rock ’n roll and Motown when the Alumni Association presented the lead singer from The Platters, Myles Savage. He and three other singers performed in “The Temptations, The Platters, The Coasters and The Drifters Salute by the Stars” in March.

President Anthony J. Catanese’s all-faculty band, TWITCHY, opened for the headliners in the concert, which aimed to raise money to replace the auditorium’s seats.

“It went beyond a sell-out. It was a huge success and a great night for everyone who came,” said Bino Campanini, associate vice president for alumni relations and executive director of the Alumni Association.
