After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales.
Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point TIME magazine called him “one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade” and Bonnie Raitt declared, “Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he’s an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for.”
Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn’s early records for Atlanta, as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with Join the Parade. Inspired by the horrific events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date.
About his album Listening Booth: 1970, a collection of reimagined classics from that seminal year in music, Rolling Stone said, “Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons – a rich immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.” In late 2014, Cohn released, “The Coldest Corner in the World,” the title song to the documentary Tree Man and his first original song released in more than seven years.
On March 25, 2016, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debut album, Marc proudly released Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and the bonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy Award that followed.
In addition to releasing new music, Cohn has put together a 25th anniversary concert tour where he is performing his debut record in its entirety from start to finish. To makes these shows even more intimate, photographs and video from Marc’s personal archives will be shown, allowing fans to not only hear the music that has become part of their own personal soundtrack, but to also see some of the people and places that populate those songs.

Through September 4, our building is taken over by dinosaur activities and adventures that will make you roar for more.
Channel your inner paleontologist by digging for fossils in 35 tons of sand at “Jack Horner’s Dino Dig.” Meet LSC’s scaliest residents and learn about the relationship between reptiles and dinosaurs. Practice removing fossils from blocks of rock. Touch a creature that’s been around longer than a dinosaur: horseshoe crabs! Young learners (ages 2-5) can also enjoy a Dino Tales story time.
Plus, you could win big! Our resident dinosaur Rex is constantly on the move. Every week during Dino Days of Summer, he’ll be hiding in a new location throughout the building. If you find him during your visit, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win dino surprises.
Kids wearing dinosaur-themed clothing can save $5 on child admission tickets during Dino Days of Summer. Just ask at the Box Office when you arrive. Good for up to 4 children per transaction.
The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will host its 10th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, August 7th at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., site of the USGA 2012 Men’s Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and has been one of Golf Week’s “Top 100 Classic Courses in America.”
The annual “Pink is the New Green®” event is one of the most popular and successful events sponsored by CBCF having raised millions to assist the efforts of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor, Dr. Larry Norton. Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.
Reservations are now open for both the morning and afternoon sessions of The Golf Classic. The morning session will begin at 7:00 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m. The afternoon session will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration and breakfast and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. An $18,000 winner-take-all-chip-off will take place immediately following conclusion of play. Continue reading
