Maria Schneider on Overcoming Writer's Block

Posted at 1:45 PM on September 19, 2012 by Daniel Gilliam

Maria Schneider is my first guest on the Composer Conversation Series. This Grammy-winning composer, originally from Windom, Minnesota, has worked in jazz and classical, and has worked with musicians Dawn Upshaw, Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra and Kronos Quartet, among others. Join my on September 28 at 2pm here at MPR. It's a free event, but reservations required.

How does Maria Schneider overcome writer's block?
