Herman Makarenko was born June 29, 1961 in the city of Lviv in the family of musical theater artists. His father, George Makarenko, was Opera soloist (tenor) and his mother, Larisa Makarenko, a Ballet soloist. From early childhood Herman wanted to become a conductor. This ambitious dream he realized through persistence in achieving goals and a deep, infinite love for musical theater.

Besides his “theatrical childhood spent behind the scenes, a serious and multi-faceted education played a significant role in the formation of the Maestro, which proved to be essential for practical conductor’s work in the future. Years of study were marked by successful graduation of Kiev Secondary Specialized Music School named after 
N. Lysenko, class fortepіano (class of M. Karafinky, 1980, gold medal), fortepіano faculty of the Kiev State Conservatory (class of Professor L. Weintraub, 1986, diploma with honors), conductor’s faculty of the Kiev State Conservatory (class of Professor R. Kofman, 1990, diploma with honors), assistantship - Internship of National Music Academy of Ukraine (the course professor R. Kofman, 1998), postgraduate course at the National Music Academy of Ukraine (supervisor Professor A. Levitskyy, 1999), and doctoral studies of the National Music Academy of Ukraine (scientific advisor - professor T. Levchuk, 2004).

During his educational phase, there was clear recognition of conductor Makarenko, –as he was named winner in national Ukrainian competitions (1980 and 1984) and later in the world as the winner in international competitions and festivals (Switzerland, Canada 1998).

Beginning in 1987, Herman gained invaluable skills while working at the National Academic Opera and Ballet of Ukraine, first as a prompter, and later as a conductor. While at the National Opera of Ukraine he was the chief conductor - artistic director of chamber music theater (1994-1995), conductor of the Kiev State Operetta Theatre (1990-1995), artistic director - chief conductor of the “Little Grand Opera New –York” (New York, 1997-1998), guest – conductor of State Opera (Osijek, Croatia 1998-2001).

His creative activities have earned him many awards as Honored Artist of Ukraine (2002) and Ambassador of Ukrainian Culture (2006) at which time he successfully represented the native music and performing arts in various countries of the world: USA, Canada, France, Italy, Russia, Czech Republic, Croatia Slovakia, Macedonia, Serbia and others.

The year 2004 was special in life of Maestro and was marked by a number of creative events. First was the birth of the orchestra "Kyiv-Classic", which performed in Paris for the celebration of 50 anniversary of Ukraine's membership in UNESCO. Three additional projects were created as well this year: “Concert Premier”, “New Year Strauss Concert” and “Declaration of Love”.
