What's New: Serebrier

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!

Hear music by Serebrier, Rodrigo, Ye, Boccherini, Dvorak, and Cristina Spinei on this episode of What's New.
