Little By Little, Harvard Square Starting To Return To Normal

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The sound of music was back in Harvard Square on Sunday afternoon as Cambridge — and the Commonwealth — begin to leave the pandemic behind.

WBZ's Carl Stevens spoke to the musicians, a pianist and saxophone player, about what performing in public meant to them after more than a year of pandemic restrictions.

"We come here to share music and to bring joy into people's lives, and to help people experience some culture and some art...and hopefully a wonderful smile to their face," said James on the piano.

A few dozen people filled the chairs and tables on Brattle Street, some with masks, and some without, listening to the musicians play.

"It's really great for both the players and for everyone around.. to be bringing music to others is awesome," said Karen, who was playing the saxophone.

In hand with the mood in Harvard Square, Gov. Charlie Baker is expected to lift or push forward some COVID-19 restrictions in the next week.
