    6 Questions with Dora Brooks

    Nick Lozovsky
    In 1972 Nicholas Lozovsky starting playing the violin in the Suzuki method at the age of 3 at The Vancouver Academy of Music. He practically lived at the Academy until he was 18 years old. He studied with Marianne Schreiber, Dr. Lise Elson, Allison Sloan and Gwen Thompson, participated in master classes with the late Sydney Harth, was Concertmaster of the Academy Symphony Orchestra, and received many awards and scholarships along the way. After a year studying in Moscow, Nicholas returned to Vancouver and received his Bachelor’s degree in Music from University of British Columbia studying primarily with Andy Dawes. In 1994 Nicholas received a full two year scholarship at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music to pursue graduate studies in chamber music. Nicholas spent many summers at the Banff Centre studying chamber music. As first violinist of the Sausalito String Quartet, he won the Grand Prize at the Carmel Chamber Music Competition, the Coleman Chamber Music Competition as well as First Prize at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. These critical successes launched the Sausalito Quartet's concert profile with a national tour with performances in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, New York, as well as summer residencies at Tanglewood and Aspen. The quartet disbanded in 1998 as Nicholas pursued a career in business overseeing one of California’s leading automotive dealer groups Internet sales strategies from infancy into a 70 million business in annual sales. Soon after he became president and CEO of  iMotive Consulting, a consulting firm that assisted dealerships throughout the country with online sales and processes. Nicholas sold the company in 2010 to pursue yet another venture. As co-founder and managing partner of Amadeus Property Partners based in New York City, Amadeus makes real estate asset and credit based investments in the United States. In his spare time, Nicholas is an avid Yoga practitioner and still enjoys playing the violin.
