ABS at HOME

Stay With Us for "Fridays with Friends"


After 12 weeks of "ABS at HOME" daily music — and considering that many of us are experiencing greater mobility as stay-at-home directives have been eased — we are ending the daily music selections on Wednesday, June 10th. But they will remain available on this page.

Starting Friday June 12th, our “ABS at Home” project will transition to a series of messages (and performances) from some of the ABS musicians that our audiences have come to know and love. We're calling it "Fridays with Friends."

Through video greetings, personal messages, and self-produced recordings, they will speak directly with you about their activities, recommended distractions, and personal journeys during these past months. We’re so grateful to the artists from whom you’ll be hearing for their generosity and earnest expressions of how much they miss you and their anticipation of being back with ABS as soon as possible. 

We know that Music is a very important part of our lives, and we are committed to being here for you now and in the future just as we have been for more than three decades.

Be sure that you are signed up to receive our "Friday's with Friends" weekly installments by clicking on the button below.
