I’m Craig Maynard, organizer and host of the Core Memory Music concert series. I’m a devoted fan of chamber music in all its forms. While I enjoy listening to recordings, I firmly believe that live performances are the best way to experience this wonderful musical genre.
Chamber music is often performed in crowded concert halls with cramped, uncomfortable seating. I find it difficult to relax and appreciate music under these conditions, so I decided to try something different. In September 2017, I started hosting concerts in my Rhode Island home.
My concerts are designed for comfort and sociability, with ample opportunity to chat with other guests, enjoy a drink before the performance, and meet the artists afterwards. Guests tell me how grateful they are for the opportunity to experience these exceptional performances in such an intimate setting.
I hope to see you at one of my concerts soon!
After three successful seasons and over two dozen performances, I decided to create a business context for my music-related projects. In July 2020, my venture began operations as Core Memory Music L3C*.
Individuals, foundations, and educational institutions who wish to support our mission are invited to make a contribution or program-related investment. For more information, please reach out to me via email.
*L3C is short for Low-profit Limited Liability Company
