Graduating Berklee students and our honorary doctorate recipient, John McLaughlin, played an adaptation of John Coltrane’s arrangements for “My Favorite Things”, written by Richard Rodgers with text by Oscar Hammerstein II, following an intro guitar solo of “Stella by Starlight” at the 2017 Commencement Concert, La Nit de Berklee.
The concert was held on July 8 in front of the Hemisfèric in the City of Arts and Sciences. Sixteen acts of graduating students performed on a floating stage in the middle of the enclosure’s artificial lake.
