- Our links with conservatoires and our Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience for young players enable us to work with the next generation of brilliant musicians both on and off the concert platform
- Our Night Shift concerts attract a new and growing audience and offer opportunities for new formats and new presentation

- Our Musicians on Call programme takes fabulous music to those who can’t visit the concert hall.
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment aims to be one of the world’s leading orchestras, giving high quality performances on period instruments, characterised by excellence and vitality. Our mission is to present the best quality performances on period instruments, exploring innovative repertoire and collaborating with and nurturing outstanding musical talent. We are known for our friendly and warm nature and engagement, both with music and audiences through our performances as well as through our vibrant education and outreach programme. We aim for this unique personality to be evident in all that we do, enabling us to interact with, and enrich, the lives of existing and new audiences and our wider ‘OAE community’ whether in or out of the concert hall.
