“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my father’s birthday and the anniversary of the Moogseum than to share an exploration of the Moog legacy through music, educational insights, and inspiration,“ noted Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We are deeply grateful to all of the musicians who are donating their time and talents to help share the transcendental power of music with a worldwide community during this difficult time, and to help raise much-needed funding for the Foundation due to the closing of the Moogseum in mid-March.”
We’ll be posting links to the Facebook event pages for each event a week before the scheduled event. Please check back to this page for updates and please join us as we unite our community through these performances.
