Welcome! I’m Craig Maynard, the man behind the curtain. I’m a former musician and a devoted fan of chamber music in all its forms. While I enjoy listening to recordings and watching concert videos, I firmly believe that live performances are the best way to experience this wonderful musical genre.
Chamber music performances often take place in large concert halls with cramped, uncomfortable seating. I find it difficult to relax and appreciate music under these conditions, so I decided to try a different approach. In September 2017, I started hosting concerts in my newly-constructed 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. Audiences tell me how much they enjoy these concerts and appreciate the opportunity to hear great music performed by accomplished artists in a relaxed setting.
I hope to see you at one of our 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 an acronym for Low-profit Limited Liability Company
