1929 Frédéric Devreese – Dutch-born Belgian composer and conductor (88 years old); has written chiefly orchestral, chamber and solo piano works.

1947 Sir Mark Elder – English conductor (72 years old); Music Director of the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester, England.

1949 Neil Shicoff – American Jewish opera singer and cantor (70 years old); known for his lyric tenor singing and his dramatic, emotional acting.
