BIOS of Okanagan Arts Awards Performers and Master of Ceremonies Peter Breeze

Master of Ceremonies Peter Breeze

With an insatiable need to perform and a natural flare for all things campy Peter Breeze definitely stood out growing up in Calgary, Alberta. Peter made his stage debut at age 9 when he starred in his school play. After receiving a standing ovation for his performance Peter turned all of his focus on becoming a star. His performing career quickly surpassed the lead roles in school productions when he was cast as a full time cast member of Calaway Live, and received formal training in acting, dancing and singing with The Youth Singers Of Calgary, The Young Canadians and eventually The Vancouver Film School where he graduated from the full time acting program. Peter has also released two full length pop albums and toured around north america opening for acts like Bif Naked and Aaron Carter. Peter started his 30’s by moving to the Okanagan and opening his own talent agency, Peter Breeze Creative.
