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.
