Myles has spent close to 20 years as a Non-Profit consultant specializing in Charity Concerts, Large Scale Special Events, Board Governance, Strategic Planning and Fundraising. In 2014 he was awarded the prestigious Morton Shulman Award for Outstanding Leadership in the Industry. His musical tastes and talents have had him as a guitar player, vocalist and drummer in a variety of bands from Canada and the United Kingdom. Myles is a firm believer in all things community-oriented and is truly grateful to hold his position with SOM where he can help elevate the Musical Community and give new opportunities to emerging artists. The Sound of Music has exploded in size since it’s modest beginnings in 1980 as a marching band parade. Operating as a not-for-profit corporation, the organization stages Canada's Largest Free Music Festival every year in June. Due to the passion, love and commitment of hundreds of volunteers, a small staff, and a roster of generous sponsors and suppliers, music takes over Burlington Downtown and Waterfront. As the region’s largest music event we support an eclectic combination of new and emerging artists, past favourites and some of today’s most popular performers. The 2022 Sound of Music Festival takes place June 12 - 19.
