Core Memory, a non-profit arts organization based in Rhode Island, is organizing and hosting a series of house concerts beginning in September 2017. A distinguished group of professional musicians is looking forward to meeting you and presenting classical music and jazz in a relaxed, informal setting.
The concerts take place in a private home in southern Rhode Island, a few miles west of Narragansett. Located near a scenic mill pond, this venue is ideal for an evening of entertainment and fine music. The performance space is a large living room with a Steinway grand piano and comfortable seating.
We’ve created a Meetup site to handle membership and reservations. Seating is limited, so it’s important to RSVP for each concert. We want to encourage everyone to try this out, so there is no admission charge. To help defray our costs, we ask for a voluntary donation at each concert.
You’re welcome to sign up for our newsletter mailing list to keep abreast of upcoming concerts and other news. Core Memory relies on private communications and word of mouth to publicize our concerts, so please share this web page with interested family and friends.

“Every concert experience is memorable in some way. Performing concerts is such an intense and intimate experience, and yet over in an instant, that nothing else I know comes close.” – Ivana Gavrić, 36, pianist
“When you’re little, you say a lot of things about what you’ll do or be when you’re older. I think it’s important not to lose sight of those dreams.” – Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski, 23, physicist
