Joelle Wallach’s Lagrimas y Locuras: Mapping the Mind of a Madwoman will be presented by pianist Margaret Mills on Tuesday, March 19 – 8:00 PM at Scott Concert Hall in the Taylor Bott Rogers Fine Arts Building on the campus of Campbell University, 98 T. T. Lanier Street Ext. in Buies Creek, North Carolina.

In Lagrimas y Locuras, Mapping the Mind of a Madwoman, Joelle Wallach returns to her interest in music which expresses a specific inner life, a particular psychological landscape. Based on the Mexican folksong La Llorona, and commissioned by Mexican pianist Ana Cervantes from Ms. Wallach as part of her Song of the Monarch, Women in Mexico project, Lagrimas y Locuras reveals the inner monologue of La Llorona herself as she haunts the banks of Mexican waterways, railing against her fate, the betrayal of her lover and the result of her own impetuous rage.

This will be part of Ms. Mills’ concert of contemporary American music, which also includes works by Joel Feigin, Gloria Coates, Charles Ives and others.

The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call Campbell University at 800-334-4111 or visit
