LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

H ow many 11-year-olds have written and produced an opera? A sixth-grader from a Nashville school, given lots of cooperation and encouragement from teachers and administration, put on a small, successful show.

In the macho world of hip-hop, women have been seen as illegitimate heiresses to the culture. But there have always been a few female rappers who braved the storm and made their presence known.

Since his musical reawakening with the critically acclaimed solo debut Fair and Square, Jimmie Dale Gilmore has also been lauded as a pioneer in the development of the now thriving insurgent country scene.

Also, Gary Floyd is still a Dick, Juliana Hatfield releases two new albums, talking with Elliott Smith, and more.
