Decades of music echo through anniversary concert

Thursday’s Rock of Ages concert was a huge success, says organizer Josh Paglione, director of student life for the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance.

“It was a packed house of alumni, current students and staff,” he said Friday.

He said the Timeline Band traced the evolution of music during the 50 years since the University’s founding, from Chuck Berry and Elvis to the Beatles, Journey, Led Zeppelin and more current favourites like Weezer.

“It was a great way to end the semester and help celebrate the University’s 50 years,” said Paglione. “What better way to do that than through music?”

Sponsors of the free concert included the UWSA and the Organization of Part-time University Students, as well as the University of Windsor Alumni Association.
