Friday and Saturday December 8-9, 2023 – CHRISTMAS CONCERTS WITH TIMOTHY AND HOSANNA NOBLE Reservations required. More details coming soon!
The singing pianist and violinist duo proclaim the gospel, encourage and uplift Christians, and ultimately bring honor and glory to our great God. Timothy began to exhibit his God-given musical talent at the age of three by playing on the piano the hymns he heard in church. From that young age, it has been Timothy’s desire to honor God with his music which is expressed by his love for sacred music and the great hymns of the church. He has a tremendous God-given talent on the piano and singing ability. Hosanna’s love for music became apparent when her mother began giving her music lessons at the age of five. She was soon drawn to the violin and has been playing it ever since. God has obviously brought this couple together and they are now traveling full-time, along with other family members, doing concerts for churches, organizations and other special events.
