Students performed with Simpson and Allen during the commencement concert, which included an impressive Led Zeppelin medley played with Page in the audience. During his commencement remarks, Page said of Berklee, “What a spirit there is here. Music has so much power across so many avenues. To be in a position to do the thing you’re best at, which is making music, and bringing joy and pleasure to other people, it can’t be much better than that.”
