Core Memory is a non-profit community service organization based in southern Rhode Island. We host monthly concerts that feature emerging artists from around the globe. These accomplished young musicians are looking forward to performing great music for you in a relaxed, informal setting.

Our concerts take place in a modern home near the village of Peace Dale, in South Kingstown. The venue is less than an hour’s drive from Providence, Newport, Westerly, and southeastern Connecticut. The performance space is a large living room with comfortable seating and a Steinway grand piano.
