Secret Piece

Yoko Ono's Secret Piece (1953)
throughout Central Park from 5AM - 8AM on June 21, 2011.
Celebrate the summer solstice with Yoko Ono's meditative Secret Piece, at sunrise in Central Park.

We will meet at Columbus Circle starting at 5AM. Bring any musical instrument or just your voice, and we will send you to a secluded part of the park to play the note of your choice to the accompaniment of birds.

At 8AM we will all return to Columbus Circle for hot green tea.

Study the above piece of sheet music and join Yoko Ono in Central Park Tuesday morning!

UPDATE: Apparently Yoko didn't even go to her own event. ZINGARA says "I woke up really early this morning thinking that different musicians where going to get together and play a Yoko Ono tone. instead i got there and everybody was on their own wandering around the park like a homeless person. There was someone there but as soon you sign your name they send you away." Lori Zimmer adds, "woke @ 330 to go to central pk... was handed a map with little explanation. very disappointed, not much explanation, no yoko, green tea from starbucks out of styrofoam cups after 3 hours...."

The other pictures in this post are from that Japan benefit that Yoko Ono threw at Le Poisson Rouge in March. You already saw the Cibo Matto pics from the same event. Here are the rest with Yoko, Sean Lennon, Patti Smith, Lenny Kaye, Antony, Lou Reed and more included. They continue below...

So embarrassing does anybody really enjoy listening to the non-sense Yoko pukes out.

no thnx

What's embarassing, 9:21, is the ignorance that is already being displayed in these comments and I'm sure more moronic posts will follow. Yoko has put out some staggeringly great music and it's tragic that people STILL don't get it. Can't believe the first comment already brings up the Beatles...c'mon!!

who's the hottie on bass?

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2011 9:46 PM

The "hottie on bass" is Sean's girlfriend and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger handmade, Charlotte Kemp Muhl.

Oops. Handmate equals bandmate. Freudian slip?

is sending people into the dark and empty park at 5am armed with nothing more than a musical instrument or their voice really a good idea?

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2011 10:26 PM

A good idea if it keeps folks from writing idiotic comments....thanks 9:43.

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2011 10:44 PM

I'd like to continue the idiotic posts by adding that Yoko got to where she is today with no help from anybody, much like Tom Arnold, Jim Belushi, and the guy that holds P-Diddy's umbrellas.

I guarantee that thing is not even plugged-in

Whose uglier: Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Antony or Yoko?

sweet, the bass hottie has some nudie pics on google

@ 1207. She's actually not a terrible musician, despite all evidence of hot chicks saying otherwise. I mean, if she has the coordination to play accordion, she can play bass.

Also, sending people into secluded parts of CP at 5am? Does Yoko know what rape is?

Posted by Anonymous | June 21, 2011 1:13 AM

give yoko a mic and a loud pa system and she will wake up manhatten at 5am.

"Yoko got to where she is today with no help from anybody"

wait..what?

right. that John Lennon guy just got lucky that she took an interest in him, otherwise no one would have even known who the fuck he was.

Who is the chick with the mini-Shake Weight?

I'm assuming 3:37 was tired when they posted their message. Get some rest, buddy.

the unique, one of a kind gullibility of BrooklynVegan readers hahahahahaha

Wait, you expected Yoko to get OUT of bed?

Posted by Buchanan | June 21, 2011 6:07 PM

Dear BROOKLYN VEGAN!

The Make Music New York website did not in any way state that Yoko herself would be hosting the event.

Do your research so I don't have to do my own you jerk(s)!!! I trusted you and you broke that trust and our relationship will never be the same again.........................

JK Nice job most of the time

But seriously, you set up a lot of people for a big let down.
