Jennifer plays a 36 string Thormahlen Serenade built by Dave Thormahlen of
Corvallis, Oregon.  The Serenade is made of attractive, high quality, lightweight
laminates.  Jennifer can easily transport her harp to outdoor weddings, festivals and
other events.  This harp has a big voice that is suitable for a variety of settings but
can be amplified upon request.

Thormahlen Serenade—Spendier than
Harpsicles or Ravennas but in my
