About
Hello, I am Henry Sergienko – a mandolin player and a main contact for the Internationals. Our musical team consists of the violinists, pianists, accordionists, cellists, guitarists, bassists, singers, saxophonists, harpists, bagpipers, dancers, and other performers. We are all formally educated in the arts of music and entertainment in Europe and the US. For the past 20 years, we performed in Chicago land and beyond at the wedding ceremonies, receptions, corporate or private parties, festivals and the fund raisers. We cover wide variety of musical styles: Classical, Jazz, Blues, American standards, and traditional music and dance from around the world (Italian, French, German, Indian Bollywood, Irish, Greek, Russian, Latin, Klezmer, Ukrainian, etc) and can perform solos, duets, trios, quartets and larger ensembles.

We can also produce a children's variety show with comedy juggling, comedy magic, ballooning, face painting and more.

We will gladly work with you on a custom program for your special event!

Here is the bio of our lead violinist Michael:

I can't say enough about what a fantastically talented and professional group The Internationals are. I hired their violinist and double bassist to play my girlfriend's (now fiance) and my favorite song as I proposed to her. Between almost 100 emails back and forth, Henry and I were able to set everything up perfectly, even though I was organizing the event from Oregon to take place in Chicago. Everything went 100% smoothly. The music was beautiful and the musicians were dressed to the hilt. If you need to hire one or more musicians for any event, I would absolutely recommend The Internationals without a doubt. I would hire The Internationals again in a heartbeat! :)

We loved the Internationals! We had a small backyard party to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. The party got moved indoors due to weather. The Internationals entertained from room to room while my guests laughed danced and thoroughly enjoyed the night. My friends want to hire them yearly just for fun.
