City of Asheville Honors Legacy of Dr. Moog

City of Asheville Honors Legacy of Dr. Bob Moog by Declaring May 23rd Bob Moog Day
Moog Music to Donate $25,000 in instruments to Asheville City Schools

Moog Music is pleased to announce that Mayor Terry Bellamy has issued an official proclamation declaring May 23rd to be Bob Moog Day in the city of Asheville.  The proclamation highlights many of Dr. Moog’s achievements, including the significant economic impact the company he founded has had on the greater Asheville area. Bob Moog, the founder of Moog Music and inventor of the legendary Moog synthesizer, made Asheville the home of his family and his company in 1978 and lived and worked here until his death in 2005. May 23rd would have been Dr. Moog’s 79th birthday.

To celebrate this historic occasion, Moog Music is donating over $25,000 in instruments to Asheville City Schools. Said Mike Adams, Moog Music President, “As a product of the Asheville City School System, I'm very pleased to have this opportunity to give back to our schools, young people and the community. I hope that the Moog instruments we donate will inspire kids toward creative expression through the exploration of music. Who knows, maybe one of them is the next Bob Moog or Stevie Wonder!”

Moog employees will also be conducting clinics and instrument demonstrations at each Asheville City School over the next few months. Moog Music staff, some of whom attended Asheville City Schools, are grateful to be continuing Dr. Moog’s work and to be a small part of his enduring legacy. Thanks to Dr. Moog, Moog Music is driven by a company culture that lives at the intersection of technology and music. This culture will also be celebrated at Moogfest, April 25-27, 2014. Moogfest is the company’s  multi-day festival in honor of the innovative spirit of Bob Moog, who was inducted into the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame earlier this month.
