CAMDEN — Award-winning pianist and composer Paul Sullivan will spend a solo hour at the Steinway 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 8, at the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St. The hour-long SoundCheck concert is sponsored by the Community Arts Fund.

Sullivan spent years playing in New York jazz clubs and in the Off-Broadway theater scene before moving to Maine. He’s released a number of his own recordings, as well as winning a GRAMMY as a member of the Paul Winter Consort. For SoundCheck, Paul promises “plenty of variety!” He will play original tunes, some never before performed in concert. He also will offer a couple of pieces in tribute to Art Tatum and Keith Jarrett, “both piano heroes of mine,” as well as a Chopin nocturne.

Tickets are $10, and advance purchase is encouraged via and 236-3154. Doors will open at 7 p.m. SoundCheck also is livestreamed on the opera house’s Facebook page, no fee or link required.

The opera house’s choose-your-own ticketing software ensures every-other-row distancing, as well as a couple of seats either side of each party’s reservation. Masks are encouraged in the building. Tickets also are on sale for many upcoming shows including Toney Rocks, with special guest Mehuman, April 16.
