Core Memory Music is looking for emerging and established artists to perform in our chamber music series. We want to showcase your artistry and provide our audience with a rich, varied mix of music each season.
Our concerts take place on Saturday afternoons at a private residence in southern Rhode Island, a few miles from the Atlantic coast. The performance space seats up to 30 people and features a Steinway model D concert grand piano. Concerts are informal and we encourage performers to interact with the audience.
Our standard performance fees are $600 for soloists, $500 per artist for duos, and $400 per artist for trios and quartets. We don’t pay for your travel expenses to and from Rhode Island but we’re happy to provide lodging, transportation, and meals while you’re here.
If this opportunity interests you, please introduce yourself. Tell us how you heard about our concert series and include links to some recent audio or video recordings. Our policy is to carefully review all proposals. It may take some time before we get back to you with our thoughts, so please be patient.
If you’re scheduled to perform for us, here are answers to some questions you may have.
How long should I perform?
Please prepare a minimum of 60 minutes of music. Most of our concerts are divided into two segments with a short intermission. Encores are optional, but they are much appreciated by our patrons.
When do I submit my concert program?
Three months ahead of your concert date, we’ll ask for your concert program. If we think it needs to be revised, we’ll explain why and suggest some possible changes. After we agree on the program, we’ll email you a written performance agreement to review and sign.
When should I arrive at the concert venue?
Please plan to arrive at least two hours before your performance is scheduled to begin. If you’re traveling several hours to get here, we recommend that you plan to arrive the day before your concert. We’re happy to provide lodging while you’re here.
Are concerts ever postponed or canceled?
Postponements are rare. However, the uncertainty surrounding the current pandemic has increased their frequency. If we don’t get enough reservations to make your concert viable, we may decide to postpone the concert and work with you to re-schedule it.
Have a question that isn’t addressed here? Please let us know.
