DeSantis celebrates Sunday in Johnson Park

— When he was a kid, Keith sang barbershop-style songs with his three brothers, Don Jr., Mark and Paul.

“Singing all those harmonies with my brothers helps me to be able to sing duets with Maria,” Condon said.

Among the duets they sing are Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway’s “Where is the Love?” and “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” popularized by James Ingram and Patti Austin. A cool, calm and confident vocalist who channels everyone from Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble, Condon is the son of Donald and JeanEllen White Condon.

Salt City Sunday coordinator Matt Vacanti is proud to be presenting all-local talent.

“There are a lot of great festivals in the area, but we wanted to create an event that celebrated artists and musicians from Central New York,” Vacanti said. To complement the stage entertainment, a variety of visual artists including painters, crafters and woodworkers will display and sell their work at the park that afternoon. The Liverpool Is The Place Committee will sell beverages and freshly popped popcorn.
