Six degrees of separation is "an idea that all living things and everything else in the world is six or fewer steps away from each other – you can connect any two people in a maximum of six steps." It was originally set out in 1929 and popularized in a 1990 play. You probably have heard of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon! We’ll connect three composers, very easily – not only through the Pulitzer Prize in Music, but through study at Cornell University.

The first published use of the word "multitask" appeared in an IBM paper describing the capabilities of the IBM System/360 in 1965. We might think of an example of multitasking as a short-order cook: keeping several orders memorized while frying eggs, flipping pancakes, taking orders at the counter, and refilling coffee!

We’ll hear from a musician who conducts, composes, and records with the greatest of ease – the multitasking maestro, Jose Serbrier – on today’s What’s New!
