During a second dose Pfizer vaccination clinic at Berkshire Community's College Paterson Field House on Saturday, March 13 at 1:45 PM, world renowned cellist and part-time resident of Berkshire County, Yo-Yo Ma, gave an impromptu cello performance for people waiting in the observation area after they had received their vaccine. It was a moment that has captured the world's attention, as Ma's performance personified the feeling of relief and of seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, after more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the world. News of this transcendental event, that left many people in the clinic in tears, has reached news organizations across the globe, and #MyBCC was excited to be able to capture this historic moment.
