Joan E. Dowlin
I am a freelance musician (French hornist) from the Philadelphia, PA area who has always been interested in politics having followed every Presidential election since 1960. I graduated from Wissahickon High School (Ambler, PA) in 1969, received a BS in Music Education from West Chester State College (PA) in 1973 and MM in Music Performance from Temple University in 1976. I performed with the San Jose (CA) Symphony, and many musical organizations including Festive Brass, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the Opera Company of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Southwest Florida Symphony and the Reading Symphony. I have a passion for writing that I have just begun to explore. From 2000-2004 I was President of the GLBT Spiritual Voices of Bucks County (PA), a spiritual support group. Although I lived in California in 1976-1980 and in Florida from 2004-2006, I have lived most of my life in North Wales, PA.
