The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) is launching a new scheme to help develop singing talent. Rising Stars of the Enlightenment will offer the opportunity for four young singers to perform regularly with the OAE during the 2017-18 season, working with conductors such as Ivor Bolton, William Christie, Mark Padmore and Sir Andràs Schiff, and established singers such as Roderick Williams, Brindley Sherratt and Mary Bevan, and performing Bach cantatas and Handel oratorios, featuring as top-billed soloists at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Kings Place.

The deadline for application is 24 January 2017, and auditions will take place in London on 8 and 9 February 2017, applicants will have to prepare a selection of solo Bach and Handel arias. Full information from the OAE website.
