Award winning cellist Yo Yo Ma surprised residents getting their Covid 19 vaccines at a clinic in Massachusetts over the weekend with an impromptu show.
As Ma waited the required 15 minutes after he received his second dose of the vaccine, he whipped out his cello to play a little music to help pass the time. Berkshire Community College, where the vaccine clinic was being held, shared news of Yo-Yo Ma’s informal performance on social media. Richard Hall of the Berkshire COVID-19 Vaccine Collaborative told a local paper that Ma "wanted to give something back."
Ironically, Ma's impromptu concert comes exactly one year after he posted his first recording of himself playing his instrument using the hashtag #SongsOfComfort.
