“For over five decades, Confederation Centre has served Canada as a multifaceted cultural institution, offering a variety of visual and performing arts with a strong focus on educational programming…taking the lead on the redefinition of our national priorities, expressed in particular through arts, culture, and heritage,” states the Confederation Centre press release issued regarding this appointment.

As a recording engineer and music producer, he has worked with many leading Canadian jazz and classical musicians including Kenny Wheeler, Mike Downes, Kirk MacDonald, Dave Douglas, Anton Kuerti, Gryphon Trio, and Tafelmusik. Before joining Humber College in 2007, he served on the faculties of McGill University, the University of Hartford, and The Banff Centre for the Arts.

“It is a privilege to join the talented and dedicated team at Confederation Centre of the Arts,” says Bellamy. “At this time in particular, the Centre plays a vital role in the national dialogue about diverse voices and what it means to be Canadian. I’m honoured to support the continued success of this cherished institution.”

He spent many of his younger years attending school on PEI, including completing his Bachelor of Music at University of Prince Edward Island before going on to complete his Master of Music at McGill University and an Advanced Executive Certificate from Queen’s School of Business.
