Core Memory Concerts is looking for emerging artists to perform in our chamber music series. If you’re a student or a recent graduate, we want to hear from you. The venue is a private residence in southern Rhode Island. The performance space seats 30 and features a Steinway model B in excellent condition.



Guidelines

We want you to perform works that showcase your artistry and provide our audience with a rich, varied mix of music each season. Our concerts are informal, and we encourage artists to interact with the audience during and after the performance. We book our concerts well in advance because most artists prefer to plan that far ahead.

Concert programs need to be finalized at least three months ahead of the performance date. Please plan to perform at least 60 minutes of music.

Our performance fees are generally $500 for piano soloists, $750 for duos, and $1,000 for trios. We also provide local transportation, meals, and lodging at the venue.

If this opportunity interests you, please email us and introduce yourself. We’ll get back to you after we have reviewed your information.

NOTE: No booking agents, please. We prefer to work directly with artists.
