If you combined Phillip Glass, Rufus Wainwright, and Franz Schubert into one person, you might end up with someone like New Yorker Joseph Keckler, an opera singer who clearly values the intersections between traditional and contemporary musicality. He stopped by our studio with renowned Austin pianist Peter Stopschinski to perform an eclectic blend of operatic, classical, and jazzy pieces that showcase his vocal talent. Keckler’s own compositions include arias and monologues, with lyrics inspired from his personal encounters with things like the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse, or bad hallucinogen trips. Joseph Keckler and Peter Stopschinski will perform at the Rollins theater on January 23rd and 24th as part of the Long Center and Fusebox Festival’s program.
