EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire music and theatre arts department will present a guest artist recital featuring award-winning organist Dr. Daniel Sullivan at 5 p.m. April 14 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

Sullivan, who is a music teacher at Messiah Lutheran School in Eau Claire and a private piano and organ instructor, will perform a variety of solo organ works by composers Vierne, Mendelssohn, Bach, Messian and Durufle.

An accomplished organ soloist, Sullivan has performed throughout the United States and Canada. As an Oundle recital award-winner, he also has performed in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Hexham, England. Sullivan has been a featured soloist at New York City's Basically Bach Festival, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in South Carolina and the White Mountain Musical Arts Annual Bach Festival in New Hampshire.

Sullivan's performances have earned him first or second prizes in the Miami International, San Marino, Gruenstein Memorial, Arthur Poister, Albert Schweitzer, Cleveland American Guild of Organists (AGO) and Twin Cities-AGO organ competitions. His doctoral document, "J.S. Bach and Permutational Design," was one of two documents to win the Richard F. French Doctoral Prize at The Juilliard School in 2010.

Sullivan holds a bachelor's degree from Oberlin Conservatory, a master's degree from Yale University and both the artist diploma and doctor of musical arts degrees from The Juilliard School.

The guest artist recital is free and open to the public. For more information about UW-Eau Claire music events, visit the music events calendar.
