The Bob Moog Foundation is excited to announce it’s second one-hour virtual tour of the Moogseum. The tour, led by Bob’s daughter and Foundation executive director Michelle Moog-Koussa, will take place on Sunday, November 8, 2020, at 2pm Eastern Time, and is open to the international community. Moog-Koussa will be guiding attendees as she lends unique insights while delving into various exhibits exploring Bob’s work and life during the early Big Briar years (1978-1984). This will be followed by a 15 minute Q & A session.
Tickets are available on a “pay what you can” basis through the Eventbrite. The funding generated from the tour will help support the Moogseum, which was closed for five months due to the pandemic.
Virtual Moogseum Tour: Early Big Briar Years will examine the origins of Bob’s new company after leaving Moog Music, Inc. in Buffalo, NY, the technical developments that came from that company, and Bob’s new life in rural western North Carolina. Dale Ong, the young engineer who worked closely with Bob during that period, will join the conversation to add insight into this unique period of the Moog legacy.
“I was ten years old when my father left Moog Music, Inc., and started Big Briar. I have vivid memories of that period and will share some of the joys and challenges of that phase of my father’s career”, notes Moog-Koussa. “This was truly a very special era where, once free of the corporate structure that he lamented, he was free to focus on projects that were truly important to his creative aspirations.”
