Enlightening Education: A Revelation where the music comes first

Welcome to OAE Education.

What makes up our programme?


Mission Statement

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.
