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.

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.
