George Liberace (July 31, 1911 – October 16, 1983) was an American musician and television performer.

Born in Menasha, Wisconsin, he was the elder brother and business partner of famed US entertainer Liberace (Wladziu Valentino Liberace or "Lee" to his friends). He appeared regularly on his brother's syndicated TV show in the 1950s as violin accompanist and orchestral arranger. He taught children how to play piano.[citation needed]

George Liberace died of leukemia in Las Vegas, Nevada, and was interred in Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

Television

In the Bugs Bunny Show, Bugs Bunny was about to play the piano, and, imitating Wladziu Liberace said "I'd like to dedicated this song to my brother George."
