The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's Rising Stars scheme was launched in 2017, a cohort of young singers who would work with and be mentored by the orchestra. The original group were on the scheme for two years, and now a new cohort of seven rising stars has been announced, Zoë Brookshaw, Sofia Larsson, Bethany Horak-Hallett, Sinéad O’Kelly, Guy Cutting, Hugo Hymas, and Dominic Sedgwick.

The seven will perform solo work with the OAE in London and across the UK and abroad, working with artists such as conductors Ádám Fischer and Masaaki Suzuki, Ian Bostridge and violinist Alina Ibragimova. The young soloists will be central to OAE's Bach, the Universe and Everything, its Sunday morning series at Kings Place which combines Bach cantatas with scientific talks, as well as performing in more unconventional venues on The Night Shift.

Bethany Horak-Hallett will be in Mendelssohn's Elijah conducted by Masaaki Suzuki at the Royal Festival Hall on 3 October 2019, and Bethany, Dominic Sedgwick and Guy Cutting will be soloists in the first Bach, the Universe and Everything at Kings Place on 13 October 2019.

Full details from the OAE's website.
