The University of Birmingham invited visitors of their annual Community Day to make their mark in history by contributing to a time capsule buried at the entrance of the new £16m state-of-the-art Bramall Music Building development, in a project to be unearthed in fifty years time. Visitors and supporters of the project had the opportunity to sign a scroll that was included in the capsule alongside a host of other university and twenty-first century memorabilia. Winning entries of local primary school competitions to design a musical instrument of the future were buried together with the winning score of a fanfare specially written for the time capsule and the original fundraising campaign brochure from the University. The Bramall Building and Elgar Concert Hall, that is set to open in 2012, and will provide a truly outstanding home for our world-class Department of Music and a superb musical venue for the region.
