The Siegel Family Music and Arts Endowment Fund has created MOGAAT (MISSION ONE GIG AT A TIME) to support local musicians, artists and venues by providing funds to compensate them for their live stream performances and commissioned works. This not only allows the musicians and artists that are performing a chance to share their gift but also it provides the masses of people who are confined to their homes to have an avenue to be entertained and enjoy the performances of these musicians. Through MOGAAT, The Siegel Fund will be sponsoring 10-15 performances through September 1st, 2021. Information for all events will be posted on the Siegel Family Music and Arts Endowment Fund Facebook Page .

ABOUT THE JOHN LENNON ‘REAL LOVE’ WORKSHOP INITIATIVE

THE SIEGEL FAMILY MUSIC AND ARTS ENDOWMENT FUND is committed to providing musical and artistic opportunities and experiences for students in our local schools. We are proud to be partnering with Theatre Within to bring the ‘JOHN LENNON® REAL LOVE PROJECT’  songwriting program to Sullivan County.

The program will include a presentation, targeting grades 4-6, in which students learn about John Lennon’s life, music, influences and highest values of peace, love, and equality.  

The second part of the program will be an interactive songwriting workshop in which students will collaborate with professional musicians to compose their own verses to John Lennon’s “Real Love.” Students will then record their own version of the song with John Lennon’s accompanying vocal, originally recorded in the late 1970s. Each school participating in this visionary program will create their own version of this iconic song.

In order to provide this and other wonderful musical and educational experience, the Siegel Family Music And Arts Endowment Fund is asking for your support. Please consider donating today!

ABOUT THE SIEGEL FAMILY MUSIC AND ARTS ENDOWMENT FUND:

The Siegel Family Music and Arts Endowment Fund was created by the Siegel family to continue the love and support that Lee and Marge Siegel had for the arts in perpetuity. The Fund at CFOS provides grants to charitable and educational programs that are committed to the promotion and sustainability of music and the arts. Our mission is to support musicians and artists as well as music venues to help promote live and streamed music performances. In addition the Fund provides educational workshops and student scholarships for students majoring or minoring in music or the arts.

Lee and Marge Siegel were huge lovers and supporters of music and the arts. They attended nearly every school concert in their community for most of their lives as well as Shandalee Musical Festival Concerts, Sullivan County Symphonic Band Concerts, live performances and art openings throughout the region whenever possible. Lee was an avid musician and played in the Callicoon Center Band for many years. Marge was a classically trained pianist. They loved to see great aspiring musicians in quality performances.
