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, South Kingstown. Peace Dale is within easy driving distance of Providence, Newport, Westerly, and southeastern Connecticut. The performance space is a large living room with comfortable seating and a Steinway grand piano.

“A concert is such an intense and intimate experience, and yet over in an instant. Nothing else I know comes close.”Ivana Gavrić, pianist
