Rising Stars of the Enlightenment is the OAE’s programme for developing the next generation of world-class singers.

For the 2017–2018 season, the Orchestra will appoint four brilliant and emerging vocal talents (SATB) to its Rising Stars programme. They will then have the opportunity to perform regularly with the Orchestra as soloists in programmes at the Southbank Centre, Kings Place and on tour. As well as collaborating with OAE leaders and principals, participants will be invited to appear in programmes with our distinguished guest conductors and Principal Artists. In the 2017–2018 season, the Rising Stars will have the chance to work with Ivor Bolton, William Christie, Mark Padmore and Sir Andràs Schiff.
