Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

Wild Honey Foundation Presents: WILD HONEY ORCHESTRA CELEBRATES THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL TO BENEFIT THE AUTISM THINK TANK @ Alex Theater
Feb 29 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm

The Wild Honey Orchestra celebrates the music of Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers the Lovin’ Spoonful as a fundraiser for the Autism Think Tank. Led by acclaimed musical director Rob Laufer, Wild Honey Orchestra & Friends (guest singers TBA) will present a comprehensive exploration of the ground-breaking catalog of one of the 1960s’ most underrated but influential bands in the folk-rock-country (Americana) world. The Wild Honey Orchestra will passionately celebrate every musical nuance of over 30 of the Lovin’ Spoonful’s brilliant songs: ‘Do You Believe in Magic,’ ‘Summer in the City,’ ‘Six O’Clock,’ ‘Coconut Grove,’ ‘Daydream,’ ‘Darling Be Home Soon,’ ‘She’s Still a Mystery,’ and so many more. Beloved by their peers – the Beatles, the Kinks, and many more – the Spoonful’s rich and varied catalog of hits and hidden treasures is a perfect fit for the Wild Honey Orchestra and Friends, including Elliot Easton of the Cars and Dennis Diken of the Smithereens. The show will benefit the Autism Think Tank’s effort to help individuals with autism and their families.
