Faculty Profile

UTSO Music Director Farkhad Khudyev

Growing up in Turkmenistan, Farkhad Khudyev was a sensational violinist from an early age. His talent brought him to the U.S., where he continued his musical journey at Oberlin Conservatory of Music.

That experience began a new path for Khudyev, which led him to the University of Texas at Austin where he serves as the Music Director and Conductor of the school's Symphony Orchestra.
