ADD: Three faculty members of the Whittier College Music Department--pianist Paul Da Silva, flutist Danilo Lozano and bassoonist David Muller--present a Faculty Benefit Concert of Classical Romance on Valentine's Day.

Da Silva--a soloist and chamber piano player--has performed in numerous concert series and recitals around the U.S., and has been characterized as "wonderfully poetic," and "a throwback to vanished generations of pianists" (Express News, San Antonio, TX).

Lozano, a powerhouse in Latin jazz, plays the flute with innovative yet accessible mixtures of Latin, African, contemporary and classical music. He is the founding member of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, has performed with such luminaries as Linda Ronstadt and Whitney Houston, and has recorded a number of CD's.

Muller was principal bassoonist for the Mexico City Orchestra, where he was involved in over 25 recordings and performed in famous concert halls around the world. Currently, Muller performs in the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival in Alaska, and has performed with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra for a television special.

This concert for lovers will include classical music selections from composers such as Beethoven, Donizetti and Bozza, among others. What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than listening to beautiful music with your sweetheart?
