Massachusetts Americans who came to get vaccinated received a surprise – a mini-concert by the famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who brought his instrument and played at a local clinic after being immunized with a second dose of the vaccine against the new coronavirus, the Associated Press reported. BTA.
With a protective mask on his face, Ma sat in the lobby of Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and played for fifteen minutes, applauded by people who had come like him to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

The famous musician, who lives in the area, said he wanted to give something to the community, local media reported.
The impromptu concert took place exactly a year after Ma began posting his recordings online with the hashtag #SongsOfComfort in an attempt to help overcome anxiety since the beginning of the pandemic.
“I wanted to find a way to share some of my soothing music,” the cellist wrote on Twitter on March 13 last year.
Since then, Ma has often performed surprising mini-concerts and virtual concerts online for front-line workers against the new coronavirus.
