Prentiss Elisabeth Kendall Allen, 24, has studied harp for fourteen years. With the scholarship monies awarded from numerous clubs, she has been able to have extensive studies with Anita Burroughs-Price, principal harpist of The North Carolina Symphony; her primary teacher was Emily Waggoner of Greenville, SC. Prentiss has completed Bachelor of Arts Degree in Harp Performance. She has competed and won in many competitions including first place in the string solo category of the National Competition for Christian Schools and the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools Competition. She has also been a finalist in both the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra and the Bob Jones University Commencement competitions. She has served as soloist with the Greenville County Youth Orchestra on five occasions including a monumental performance with the GCYO and the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.  

Since then she has been soloist with the Bob Jones University Chamber  orchestra, and she was also featured in a formal concert series in North Carolina. In 2007 she travelled in Mexico for two months doing mission  work and ministering through sacred music. Anita Burroughs-Price, Susan Bennett-Brady, Helen Rifas, and Dr. Carroll McLaughlin have all instructed Prentiss through master classes. She currently performs with different churches and orchestras, and frequently performs for weddings and events, and teaches harp in her home studio.

Prentiss is abundantly blessed to be the wife to Chandler and mother to Hampton. Outside of her love for Jesus Christ, she is thrilled to devote herself to her family. Having grown up serving as a daughter to Dr. and Mrs. Tom Kendall, Sr., marriage has been an easy transition as she and Chandler make their new home in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee. As a family, they desire to affect the world for the sake of Jesus Christ. Prentiss loves to discover and learn new skills as she explores the vast center of education, hospitality, production,and business the "home" provides. Some of her favorite hobbies include reading, writing, study of theology,  hospitality and homemaking, piano, running her home-based business, gardening, fishing, hunting, floral arranging, music composition and arranging, and traveling.
