Peabody Alumna Juliet McComas Passes Away

juliet mccomasThe Peabody community is saddened by the loss of Juliet McComas (BM ’71, MM ’74, Piano). Inspired by her studies at Peabody with Dr. Konrad Wolff, McComas created the Annual Keyboard Marathon, featuring the piano faculty of the San Francisco Community Music Center, in 2004. One of the most popular musical events in the community, the annual marathon continues to this day. Renamed in McComas’s honor and dedicated to her, the Juliet McComas Keyboard Marathon will be a virtual event next April, on the theme of “Bold Spirits: Celebrating Women Composers.”
