HELENA–For the third straight summer, Magic City Smooth Jazz and the Jazz in the Park program will visit the Helena Amphitheater to provide a free concert featuring smooth jazz artists to make for a fun and relaxing summer evening near the banks of Buck Creek.

The free concert will take place Sunday, July 9, from 6-9 p.m., at the Helena Amphitheater highlighted by Joe Carnaggio Trio and Phil Denny providing the entertainment.

Since its inception in 2008, Magic City Smooth Jazz has hosted more than 90 free concerts for the public while presenting more than 275 emerging and established artists while impacting the lives of more than 20,000 adults and children, according to the organization.
