There are now 3 divisions at Bocal Majority:

  1. Regular
  2. Premier
  3. ADRIT (Advanced Double Reed Institute of Texas)

Regular division is appropriate for all ability levels – groups are determined by audition the first day of camp

Premier division is the highest level group at camp besides ADRIT. Work with a special, high-level instructor (often college professors). Enrollment is limited, no audition necessary. Cost slightly higher than regular.
