OAE Experience

The Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience gives gifted period instrument players the chance to work alongside OAE players. The year-long scheme is aimed at players nearing the end of their studies, to help bridge the gap between conservatoire education and a professional career.

Short-listed applicants will be invited to audition. If you are successful, you’ll participate in the OAE Academy course and take lessons with OAE principal players. You’ll also be invited to take part in rehearsals, concerts and education work as a professional player (i.e. you’ll get paid). We’ll even give you free tickets to concerts at Southbank Centre.

Applications for the 2018 scheme are now open. The deadline is 5pm on Friday 1 September 2017.
