Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ivan Semyonovitch Kozlovsky (also referred to as Kozlovskiy or Kozlovskij) (March 24 [O.S. March 11] 1900 - December 21, 1993) was a Soviet lyric tenor of Ukrainian ethnicity, one of the greatest stars of Soviet opera, as well a producer and director of his own opera company, and longtime teacher at the Moscow Conservatory. Ivan Kozlovsky was born in the village of Marianivka near Bila Tserkva, Russian Empire (currently in Ukraine) and began to sing at the age of seven in the chorus of the St. Michael's Monastery. He went on to study drama, piano and singing (with the famous soprano Olena Muravyova) at the Mykola Lysenko Institute of Music and Drama in Kiev. He also sang with his brother in Oleksander Koshetz's choir in Kiev. This instruction was cut short after two years, due to the outbreak of the civil war in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution. Kozlovsky sang in a vocal quartet under the direction of O. Svechnikov. His voice enabled him to join the army engineers, as a lead singer in a military band.
