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 meeting you and performing great music in a relaxed, informal setting.

Our concerts take place at a private residence in the village of Peace Dale, South Kingstown. Peace Dale is within easy driving distance of Providence, Newport, and southeastern Connecticut. The performance space is a large living room with a grand piano and comfortable seating.
