Everyone is invited to join neighbors and friends for a fun, free summer concert in the park by Concepta Sunday, Aug. 9, at 4 p.m. on the Belfast Common, Miller and Cross streets on the waterfront.

This local multitalented artist offers a motivational sound and moving energy. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, Concepta has been singing since age 5. Her teens were spent performing throughout South Africa; she later toured countries such as Zimbabwe, Dubai, Bahrain and Egypt as the headlining act for several major hotel chains including the Hilton and Marriott. She lived in New York for more than 11 years and has been a Maine resident since 2012.

The concert is sponsored by Belfast Department of Parks and Recreation. Some seating is provided, and concertgoers are encouraged to bring a chair or a blanket and picnic. To learn more about Concepta, visit iconcepta.com.
