John Maxwell Geddes, who died in September 2017, will be remembered as one of Scotland’s most prolific composers.
Geddes’s legacy is carried forward in the form of the Geddes Peterson Foundation.
Upon his death a lifelong colleague and friend, Hal Peterson contacted SMC to offer a financial donation in John’s name. Together with Hal the SMC and the Geddes family have formed the Geddes Peterson Foundation with the objective of establishing an annual award to enable support and inspiration for aspiring classical composers in Scotland.
