Ge­orge Bel­liveau Vis­its Port El­gin Re­gional School


On Wed­nes­day, the 29th of Fe­bru­ary, East Coast Mu­sic Award win­ner Ge­orge Bel­liveau, was the cen­ter of at­ten­tion at Port El­gin Re­gional School.

Ge­orge, along with sev­eral other mem­bers of his band, per­formed a live one-hour con­cert at PERS, much to the de­light of the school’s many stu­dents.

Im­mer­sion stu­dents at the school were fa­mil­iar with his mu­sic as they lis­ten to it daily in class.

Af­ter the con­cert, Ge­orge was more than pleased to have an in­ter­view with two stu­dents, Fin­negan Kum­mer and Olivia Malone.

Ques­tion: What in­spired you to be­come a mu­si­cian?

Ge­orge: “Well I grew up in a mu­si­cal fam­ily. I was the youngest, and my older sib­lings and par­ents played mu­sic, so I kind of grew up in it.”

Ques­tion: What’s your favourite thing about be­ing a mu­si­cian?

Ge­orge:” What I like about my mu­si­cal ca­reer is that I get to play my mu­sic and meet new peo­ple. I get to travel to var­i­ous places and see dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions.”

Ques­tion: What’s as­pect of your ca­reer?

Ge­orge: “The hard­est as­pect of my ca­reer is that it re­quires a lot of trav­el­ling. It’s hard on the fam­ily.”

Ques­tion: Where do you see your-


hard­est self in 5 years?

Ge­orge: “In 5 years I see my­self, hope­fully, pro­duc­ing al­bums and con­tin­u­ing to play mu­sic. I may also try to make an al­bum in English.”

Ques­tion: Who is your mu­si­cal idol and why?

Ge­orge: “My mu­si­cal idol would have to be Keith Ur­ban. Well, more of an in­spi­ra­tion than an idol. He’s very in­no­va­tive and has an in­flu­ence on my mu­sic.”

The con­cert was a huge suc­cess! Not only did stu­dents sing and dance along, they also lined up for au­to­graphs af­ter­wards and a chance to have their picture taken with a lo­cal tal­ent.

As this con­cert was en­joyed so much by stu­dents and staff alike, hope­fully it has laid a foun­da­tion for many more to come.

ECMA Award win­ner Ge­orge Bel­liveau per­formed at PERS on Feb. 29, much to the de­light of the stu­dents.
