The Royal Academy of Music is Britain's most celebrated music conservatoire. It was founded in 1822 and since 1999 has been part of the University of London. Famous alumni include Sir Elton John, Michael Nyman and Sir Simon Rattle. In 1911 it moved into a purpose-built Edwardian brick building on the present site (known as the original building) adjacent to John Nash's Grade 1 listed York Gate, which dates from the 1820s. In 2001, the Nash building was refurbished and opened to the public as a museum, with exhibits ranged over three floors, together with a library on the upper floor and practice rooms in the basement. At the same time, the David Josefowitz Recital Hall was opened. This is a new underground structure sitting between the two older buildings, that is clearly identified by its barrel-vaulted roof. It has seating for 150 and is used for orchestral rehearsals, chamber music performances, masterclasses and community events.
