Nohema Fernandez's musical career is up in the air Ÿ literally. When she's not teaching at the UA, Fernandez is at cruising altitude in her Cesna 182, "regaining her sanity."
Back on the ground, Fernandez today will launch the University of Arizona College of Music's faculty recital program. Her program, she said, will center around music that has inspired or was inspired by dance.
Fernandez, an associate professor of music, says she has a lifelong love of dance and music, and is thankful for the "opportunity to share with the academic community." She explains that "(dance) rhythms are a part of the culture that inspires a musician."
Fernandez says she is quite happy living in Tucson and enjoys the clear weather Ÿ perfect for flying. For Fernandez, flying is a way to "overcome fears, and to be challenged" and also helps her to "maintain her perspective."
Fernandez's recital begins at 8 tonight. Admission is free.

Two people reported to the Wildcat Friday that they observed people dumping "mutilated animals" into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Tucson Institute of Religion's dumpster.
Institute instructor Michiel Anderson said students had gone quail hunting that morning and had cleaned the animals at the institute.
The animals that were hunted were rabbits and quail, Anderson said. He said quail hunting season had begun that day.
