World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma treated individuals at a clinic in Massachusetts to a concert after he got his second COVID-19 dose yesterday, March 13.

His performance — and the applause he got from his audience — was seen in videos shared by Berkshire Community College on Facebook.

His gesture went viral on Twitter after one Frankie Paris (@fparises) wrote, “Happy Saturday to everyone but especially Yo-Yo Ma who got his second dose at our local vaccine clinic today and played a concert for everyone during the 15 min waiting period.”

The cellist “wanted to give something back,” Richard Hall of the Berkshire COVID-19 Vaccine Collaborative told The Berkshire Eagle.

Ma’s second COVID-19 jab and mini-concert come a year after he performed music to provide comfort in the early days of the pandemic. He kicked off his #SongsofComfort campaign with Antonin Dvorak’s “Goin’ Home” and posted it on Twitter last March 14, 2020.

His home recordings inspired the album “Songs of Comfort and Hope,” a collaboration with pianist Kathryn Stott released last December. JB
