Baryshnikov Arts Center Presents

BAC Salon: Joseph Keckler

April 16-17, 2020

“The sensibility of a magician, a trickster’s dark humor and a formidable musical and literary erudition.” — The New York Times

An evening salon featuring musician, composer, and author Joseph Keckler, who has garnered acclaim for his powerful voice, image-rich songs, and absurdist humor. A versatile artist working across genres, Keckler recently premiered a series of opera and theater performances and was the national support act for the rock band Sleater-Kinney.

Refreshments will be served.

Leadership support for music programming provided by the Thompson Family Foundation.

Joseph Keckler is a BAC Resident Artist alum.
