Core Memory, a non-profit arts organization, is hosting a new series of concerts beginning in September 2017. A distinguished group of professional musicians is looking forward to presenting chamber music and jazz in a relaxed, informal setting.

The concerts will take place in a private home in southern Rhode Island, a few miles west of Narragansett. Located on a hill overlooking Saugatucket Pond, this venue is ideal for an evening of entertainment and relaxation. 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 please RSVP for each concert you plan to attend. To help us defray our costs, we’re asking members for a contribution in the form of dues. We want to encourage everyone to try this out, so we’re waiving dues for new members until after their first concert.

Not sure if a salon-style concert is for you? You’re welcome to sign up for our monthly newsletter 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 family members and friends.

The first season of concerts will take place on the second Saturday of each month, beginning in September 2017. The focus this season is on solo piano music, but we’re also featuring a jazz vocalist, a piano duo, and a special performance by Natalie Zhu.
