GRAMMY-winning baritone Cornell MacNeil died July 15 in Charlottesville, Va. A cause of death was not provided. He was 88 years old. Considered one of the greatest postwar American baritones, MacNeil made his debut with the New York City Opera in 1953, performing the part of Alfredo Germont in Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata.

During his career, MacNeil also performed with the San Francisco Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Teatro alla Scala, and the Metropolitan Opera, with which he performed 26 roles in more than 600 appearances from 1959–1987.
