For 2015, Corpus Illuminata is proud to welcome composer, musician and storyteller JILL TRACY (San Francisco), whose dark seductive music has appeared on CBS, NBC, PBS, numerous independent and feature films, and was used by Showtime as the “Final Requiem” to promote the wildly anticipated last season of Dexter. On Friday August 14th, Jill Tracy will share her intimate experiences with the renowned Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, the nation’s foremost collection of medical oddities, to which she became the first musician in history to receive a grant to compose within the museum itself. Then on Saturday August 15th, she will close the exposition with a rare solo performance within the gallery amidst the anatomic/medical-inspired artwork.

The overall event begins at 6pm until Midnight on the 14th and 15th of August 2015. All ages are welcome, however discretion must be advised due to graphic medical content. Those under 18 Years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Advance admission is $10 or $15 at the door and children 12 years and under are admitted free.
