EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host a guest artist recital featuring Dr. Daniel Sullivan at 5 p.m. April 15 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

Sullivan will begin with Prelude and Fugue in G minor, Op. 7 by Marcel Dupre. Three choral preludes by J.S. Bach will follow, including "An Wasserflüssen Babylon," "Allein Gott" and "Valet Will Ich Dir Geben." Bach's "Ricercar a 6" from "The Musical Offering" will be next.

The concert will continue with "Chant de Paix" by Jean Langlais and the fifth part of "Meditations on the Mystery of the Holy Trinity" by Olivier Messiaen. The last piece will be "Passacaglia" by Joseph Rheinberger.

Sullivan is a music teacher for grades 1-8 at Messiah Lutheran School in Eau Claire, and he teaches piano at the Eau Claire Music School and Immanuel Lutheran College. In addition to piano, he offers instruction in organ, music theory, ear training and counterpoint.

Sullivan earned a bachelor's degree from Oberlin Conservatory and a master's degree from Yale University. He received an artist diploma and doctor of musical arts from the Juilliard School, where he was appointed in 2008 to design and instruct an organ literature course.

As an Oundle recital award-winner, Sullivan has performed in Scotland and England. He was a featured soloist at New York City's Basically Bach Festival, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston and the White Mountain Musical Arts Annual Bach Festival in New Hampshire.

Sullivan has been awarded first and second prizes in the Miami International, San Marino, Gruenstein Memorial, Arthur Poister, Albert Schweitzer, Cleveland-AGO and Twin Cities-AGO organ competitions. In addition to solo efforts, he has collaborated with Jason Cutmore as the New York Piano-Organ Duo.

The guest artist recital is free and open to the public.
