The Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience scheme enables exceptionally gifted period instrument players to work alongside the Orchestra and receive ongoing mentoring from our players. Participants from in 2015 have the opportunity to work with world-class conductors including Ádám Fischer, Robin Ticciati, Ivor Bolton and Marin Alsop as well as leading soloist András Schiff.

We welcomed the latest batch of participants into the Orchestra at the OAE Academy in January. This annual 3 day event focuses on historically informed practice and performance, led by one of our leaders, Maggie Faultless. This year saw workshops based on Baroque and Classical repertoire led by players Lisa Beznosiuk, Chi-chi Nwanoku MBE, Steven Devine and Martin Lawrence.

The Academy isn’t just about playing great music, and the participants also receive training in editing scores for historical performance (workshops led by Roy Mowatt and Claire Holden). Those involved in our flagship education project, Watercycle, are tutored by Education Director Cherry Forbes. As a bit of light relief, participants waltzed their way through the final day in a session with Baroque dance expert Mary Collins. All of these sessions are designed to help guide the participants throughout their time at the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
