OAE Experience

The Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience gives gifted period instrument musicians the chance to work alongside our orchestral players. The year-long scheme is aimed at players who have already finished or are finishing their studies and allows participants to be involved in and be mentored by our musicians in a variety of events across the year.
How it works

How it works

Each year’s scheme involves an Academy in London in January, a four-day intensive course supervised by our Leader, Margaret Faultless.

Following the Academy, the Experience ensemble may perform occasional concerts. Depending on instrument, some participants go on to take part in concerts by the main Orchestra.

There are also opportunities for additional lessons with our players, to sit in rehearsals for Orchestra projects, and to take part in our Education programme.
