What AbaConcerts is
AbaConcerts creates a professional stage and offers talented musicians the opportunity to perform live.
The Covid-safe connection via livestreaming to national and international audiences is a concrete help to support and keep the music scene and culture alive in these challenging times.

Musicians performing in the Abacus Concert Hall will have everything they need to make their live performance an experience: stage, technical equipment, professional crew for sound, image, video and livestream technology.

How the project was born
The music scene is at a complete standstill, the covid pandemic has robbed countless musicians of the opportunity to perform live. The impact on artists' incomes and futures has been severe in some cases.
With AbaConcerts, Elizabeth Escamilla wants to set an example by offering a concrete contribution to alleviate this situation. AbaConcerts aims to help musicians stay connected with their fans through Covid-safe live concerts and also open access to a wider audience.
More details about the project are told by Elizabeth Escamilla herself in this short video:
