Ever since I started playing a saxophone, I knew I was destined to be a performer. Shortly after receiving my Master’s Degree in Jazz Performance from Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts, Ukraine, I began my career as a professional saxophone player and DJ.
I have lived and worked in five continents, including both Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. I used to tour with Keiko Matsui and De Phazz. I played on live TV in a Ukrainian version of Dancing With The Stars and was a part of the orchestra for famous European circuses in England and Germany. I had a privilege to collaborate with many artists while cruising on a ship around the globe as part of Royal Caribbean Cruise company and was a solo artist at the Art Studio Entertainment Agency in Egypt.
I am currently a saxophone player at the HIP Service Entertainment Inc., touring with a company around California. I often perform with my wife, Alina Ilchuk, who is a professional singer. Her repertoire includes both, light classical and pop hits.
