OPERAnauts Performing Artist, Pianist
Equally at home as a solo recitalist, collaborator and arranger on both the piano and the organ, Daniel Stipe’s broad array of abilities lends a rare depth of understanding and excitement to his music making. His large and varied concert repertory, with special focus on works of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, continues to delight audiences wherever he performs. He is a prizewinner in the William Hall Pipe Organ Competition in San Antonio (where he also garnered the Hymn-playing Prize), the Tulsa Crescendo Music Awards, the Fort Wayne National Organ Playing Competition, and the AGO/Quimby Region VII Competition for Young Organists. In 2006 he was featured in recital on the Rising Stars series at the National Convention of the American Guild of Organists; in 2007 he premiered his original organ transcription of Richard Strauss’ Four Last Songs with soprano Lindsey McKee at the Texoma Convention of the National Association of Teachers of Singing; and in 2012 he performed his original transcription of the final movement of Skryabine’s Second Symphony for the National Convention of the Association of Anglican Musicians.
