ADRIT is an exclusive, advanced double reed workshop where you study with high-level performers from around the country. Usually these students are in high school and college, though participation is not determined by age, but by ability level.
- Advanced reed-making
- Orchestral excerpts & solos
- College auditions
- Chamber music
- Study with the Best!
ADRIT will take place in select locations:
- Austin 1
- Houston North (at Sam Houston State University)
- Southern California (at Redlands University)
- Ohio (at Miami University)
- Virginia (at Shenandoah University)
All students will be required to audition for ADRIT regardless of their participation in the past, and there will be a limited number of spots available for each instrument at each location. There is an application fee of $25 that is non-refundable, but that will be applied towards tuition if you enroll. If you audition for ADRIT and are not offered a spot, you will be offered a spot in our high school division and the fee can be applied to that. Audition repertoire is set by Bocal Majority/Operation O.B.O.E.
An audition application is found here and requires the upload of your audition audio file. All formats for audio or video files are accepted. You may also record your audition and upload to an external site (i.e.., YouTube) and type in the link on the application.
Audition deadline for ADRIT is March 1, 2018
