Writer’s block is annoying. Whether you’re writing an essay in college, a report at work, or a piece of music, everyone has encountered a creativity drought. But what about the iconic composers? Didn’t creative expression effortlessly flow from them? Nope! It took Johannes Brahms nearly twenty years to finish his first symphony. He said that he didn’t think he would finish it, even after he’d been working on the piece for almost a decade. Aaron Copland shared a similar experience when it took him over a year to write his sixteen-minute Clarinet Concerto for Benny Goodman. So, take a break from your writer’s block and come hear what procrastination sounds like!
