The Myles of Smiles Open Mic goes virtual this fall.

Creative Compass Society would like to invite musicians and songsmiths to share their talent with the community. Send in a video recording of your selected song and we will add your performance to the Open Mic spotlights in our showcase of local talent. Please ensure recordings are clear, landscape format and under 4 minutes. Upload your video to a cloud service (Dropbox, WeTransfer, or Google Drive) and send in the completed form submission together with a link to your video file.

The Myles of Smiles Virtual Open Mic Event is organized by Creative Compass Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect emerging talent with community partners fostering shared learning opportunities across all arts disciplines. The Myles of Smiles Music Programs are inspired by Myles Jordan Seib, who passed away from complications of a brain tumour at the age of 29. Myles, a multi-talented musician who shared his music, smile and love through connections made throughout his life, is the spirit behind the music.

The event will be hosted by 2020 Community Theatre Coalition Best Actor award winner, Paul Cowhig and feature a line up of past regular Myles of Smiles participants together with both emerging and established musicians in Open Mic spotlights. The Myles of Smiles Open Mic will be launching to the community beginning on Saturday November 28th with MainStage performances by local musicians – Hugh Barbour, Jessica Mai, Tom Hammel, Ava Hamill, Mark Schurch, Tom Welsh, Garth Johannesson, Warren Hunter and Dave Mercer.

“Unfortunately in spring/summer 2020 the society was unable to host our regular event similar to past years as planned” says Creative Compass president, Brigitte Seib, “As the weather gets cooler and people are heading indoors, the society will pivot to a virtual event. We did not want to end 2020 without showcasing some of the talented musicians who have supported the project in the past and also presenting an opportunity for any local talent within our own community to join us in spreading Myles of Smiles during this difficult year.”
