Little Big Show Benefit Concert Series To Rock Seattle Non-Profit Arts Organizations

Stocks in this article: SBUX

Today Starbucks, KEXP and Seattle Theatre Group (STG) launch the Little Big Show, a new quarterly benefit concert series that helps Pacific Northwest citizens make a difference in the community as music fans. The face value of tickets (excluding possible fees and/or service charges) will be donated to local non-profit organizations in support of arts-based programming.

The inaugural Little Big Show concert is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 16, at 8:00 p.m. at the Neptune Theatre. The total face value of ticket sales will benefit Arts Corps (, an arts education organization for disenfranchised youth. This February, the Little Big Show series will be kicked off by hometown favorites Pickwick, with electro-soul duo Fly Moon Royalty as special guests.

“Starbucks is committed to helping communities thrive, and by providing direct access to arts programs we’re helping build a stronger, more vibrant Seattle culture,” said Rodney Hines, director of Community Investments, Starbucks. “We’re honored to team up with stalwarts KEXP and STG to host Little Big Show, to inspire our neighbors to get involved and create positive change in our neighborhoods, while celebrating Seattle’s musical heritage.”

“Last year, 12 percent of middle and high school students in Seattle reported that Arts Corps programs were their first-ever arts classes,” said Andrea Fullerton, Development Director, Arts Corps. “Little Big Show proceeds will help sponsor at least two after-school classes for an entire year, or give approximately 120 youth the opportunity to take an arts class. We applaud Starbucks, STG and KEXP for making such a generous commitment to provide necessary resources to our students."

In addition to championing local arts programs through STG, over the past 40 years Starbucks has helped celebrate and support many other hometown traditions, including Bumbershoot, the Family 4th at Lake Union Celebration and Hot Java Cool Jazz at the Paramount. Starbucks commitment to Seattle also includes grants to support critical local human services, arts programming, and ongoing community service by Starbucks partners (employees).
