About the OAE

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) specialises in historically informed performance. It is governed by its players and works with its Principal Artists who include Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Mark Elder as well as soloists such as Nicola Benedetti, Roderick Williams and Gerald Finley. The Orchestra aims to bring the very best of the period music tradition to today’s audiences in performances characterised by artistry, integrity and adventure.

The OAE is Resident Orchestra at Southbank Centre and Associate Orchestra at Glyndebourne Festival Opera. The orchestra tours globally and, through a wide range of education projects, engages with thousands of people across many parts of Britain.

In 2020, we became the very first orchestra in the UK to take up residence in a school. We are immensely proud of our embedded education partnership with Acland Burghley School, and that we can share the next chapter of the OAE story with the wider Camden community.

In October 2020, we launched our digital subscription platform, OAE Player, which features over fifty new music performance videos, created specifically for an online audience and filmed in-house by the OAE’s digital team.
