Mulberry Street. The program is free and open to the public. A short business meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. immediately followed by the evening’s entertainment. Noble’s musical repertoire includes classical, patriotic and religious pieces with an emphasis for the evening on holiday music to celebrate the season. At only 15-years-old, Noble has recently opened for many nationally known vocalists and groups. Since he was three years old, Noble’s parents started noticing his amazing musical talent when he began playing songs on the piano that he had heard in church. He was then enrolled in a program called Music for Young Children in which he participated until he began formal piano lessons at the age of six. He has trained with and learned from other talented and gifted pianists of our day including Dino Kartsonakis, Kim Collingsworth and the late Anthony Burger. In 2013, Noble produced and recorded two of his latest CD’s: “Timothy Honors America” and “Honoring Christ at Christmas”. Additional information on his performances can be found at Refreshments will be provided. For more information contact the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit or email
