The death is reported of Jeremy Kipnis, son of the popular US harpsichord and conductor Igor Kipnis, and grandson of the Metropolitan Opera bass, Alexander Kipnis.
Jeremy, a recording engineer and online producer, was 54.
He was out swimming in Lake Carmel when he suffered an apparent heart attack despite being in peak physical condition. Medical advisors say the extreme heat may have been a contributory factor.
Our condolences to the family.
