(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Alt-cabaret vocalist Joseph Keckler, whom the New York Times called “an operatic singer whose range shatters the conventional boundaries of classical singing,” performs a concert to benefit Animalkind, the cat rescue and adoption center in Hudson, at Club Helsinki Hudson on Sunday, April 2, at 7pm.
Joseph Keckler is a widely-acclaimed singer, writer, songwriter, and artist, with a rich, versatile three-plus octave voice and sharp wit. His compelling performances combine humor, autobiography, and classical themes from a unique perspective.
The Village Voice named him “Best Downtown Performance Artist,” and the New York Times declared him a “major vocal talent.” Keckler has been featured on BBC America’s The Nerdist and WNYC Soundcheck, and has recently appeared at venues including SXSW, Centre Pompidou, BAM, Third Man Records, PEN American Center, Miami Art Basel, and Merkin Hall, among others.
Doors open at 6pm Tickets are available online from Animalkind, at 518-822-8643, or at Animalkind’s headquarters at 721 Warren St., Hudson. Tickets are $600 for a VIP table of six; $60 VIP; and $25 for general admission.
Ticket sales will benefit Animalkind’s adoption center, which rescues over 1,000 cats and dogs every year and finds them loving homes.
