I recently had the great pleasure of joining the OAE on a little tour to Eisenstadt, Austria, playing a little bit of Schubert and lots of Haydn in the Esterhazy Palace where he worked. It was my first international tour, and my first freelance work with the OAE, having been a member of the Ann and Peter Law Experience Scheme this year.Read More

We got the New Year off here at the OAE to a flying start with, the OAE Academy, a three day course for our new Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience participants. We had a snowy few days with some players being delayed on their way in from Spain and others being snowed in in Somerset! Those who did manage to make it through the snow were treated to three days of rehearsals, singing workshops, a yoga session, Education sessions and some very tasty home cooked meals from the Amadeus centre.
The photos are of the orchestra rehearsing with OAE leader Maggie Faultless, an Education composition session and some group shoulder massages before the rehearsal with OAE Principal Oboe Tony Robson!
