I’m Craig Maynard, the organizer and host for this concert series. I’m a devoted fan of chamber music, broadly defined here as art music composed for a soloist or small ensemble. I firmly believe that live performances are the best way to experience this wonderful musical genre.

Chamber music performances often take place in concert halls with cramped, uncomfortable seating and poor sight lines. I find it difficult to relax and appreciate music under these conditions, so I decided to try something different. In September 2017, I began hosting public concerts in the living room of 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 much they enjoy listening to fine music in such a warm, intimate setting. I hope you’ll join us at an upcoming concert.
