Octavio Garavito

Octavio Garavito is a Latino musician born in Montebello, California. From 2014 to 2022, he has dedicated himself to his studies at the University of Texas at El Paso, focusing on Music Education and Vocal Performance in a classical setting. In the future, he seeks to obtain a master’s in Musical Composition to become a composer for Video Game soundtracks.

Octavio’s passion began in high school as he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his former choral instructor Elvin Porflit, who helped Octavio compete in regional competitions such as the TMEA All State Choir. Since then, he has set his goals on becoming a choral instructor and composer. Aside from music, Octavio enjoys spending time with his cats, playing video games, and quality time with his family.
