"I'm 65," says Kiri Te Kanawa, the golden-toned, New Zealand-born soprano. "I can't say the voice sounds like it did at 35. But as long as I do music that suits me, I'm fine. If you're a size 12 you don't try to wear a size 8, do you? You'd look very stupid." Te Kanawa, whose flair for straight talking is as much a part of her persona as her ever-glamorous appearance, will give a recital at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society.

As police investigated school shootings in other areas, police raced to three north county schools yesterday after the Anne Arundel County school district office received a telephone call reporting local shootings. The male caller, who contacted the central office about 10:30 a.m., said that as he spoke, teachers were being shot at the three schools. After a few tense moments, police quickly determined the report was false, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a department spokesman. All was quiet at Glendale Elementary School in Glen Burnie and Hilltop Elementary School and North County Senior High School in Ferndale, but school officials sent administrative staff to the three schools for assistance.
