During the 15-minute observation period — which is done to make sure vaccinated patients don’t feel any adverse effects — Ma took out his cello and started to perform, The Berkshire Eagle reports.
Richard Hall, who works for the Berkshire COVID-19 vaccine collaborative, told The Berkshire Eagle that the performance was “very special.”
- “What a way to end the clinic,” wrote Hall in an email.
The Associated Press shared a video of the performance.
Last year, Ma posted videos on social media of himself performing in a series he called #SongsOfComfort, USA Today reports. These performances came in the early days of the pandemic when times were difficult for many.
- “In these days of anxiety, I wanted to find a way to continue to share some of the music that gives me comfort,” he wrote on Twitter on March 13, 2020.
