“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,“ says 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.”
