The James H. Geddes Award

Between 1953 and 1981, Ye Cronies saw one man play accompaniment to our visiting artistes - Mr. James H. Geddes.

At the start of the 1981/82 season, the Committee received news that Mr. Geddes has sadly passed away over the previous summer, an undoubtedly huge loss to the Club.

 

In recognition of James' life-long love of music, which also saw him serve as Ye Cronies Concert Director, the Club looked to create an annual prize fund to support students of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD).

Such was the respect for Mr. Geddes' value to Ye Cronies, donations from across the Club saw a total of £1,500 raised and following discussions withe RSAMD, it was agreed these funds would be best served in the form of a Bursary. 

 

Just one year following Mr. Geddes' passing, the first Bursary of £100 was awarded to a promising repetiteur at the RSAMD, for use in supporting their ongoing training training.

This award continues to support students today, and is known as the James H. Geddes Award.
