Pianist Timothy Ledger is known for his engaging musical presence, thoughtful interpretations, and bright, colorful sound.
Tim has gratefully enjoyed performing across North America and in Europe. He was hailed as a “demon at the keyboard” for his performances of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with Alexis Hauser and the McGill Symphony Orchestra, and his performances of the Shostakovich Piano Quintet and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 were featured on CBC Classical. Tim is also an advocate for both new and historically underrepresented music. Recently, he premiered Timepiece—a commission with composer Phillip Sink—in a recital for Chamber Music Milwaukee.
A prolific chamber musician with a keen sense of ensemble, Tim has appeared with Opéra de Montréal (OperaTalks lectures), the Orchestre classique de Montréal (All That Jazz series with Trio Élan), and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM Chamber Music series), among many others. Tim is currently one-half of the LETS Duo with longtime piano duet partner Sadie Eaton.
As a devoted music educator and organizer, Tim is a member of Music Teachers National Association, maintains an active presence in the Central-East district of the Ohio Music Teachers Association, and serves on the executive board of the Columbus Music Teachers Association. He is also the chairperson of the CEOMTA Graves Piano Solo and Ensemble Competition, a statewide competition that showcases a high level of young artistry for solo and duo pianists of all ages. Tim has served as a lecturer at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, Marianopolis College, and McGill University, and enjoyed an artist residency at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee this spring.
Tim resides in Columbus, Ohio, where he maintains a full piano studio. He holds degrees from McGill University’s Schulich School of Music (Doctor of Music), the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University (Master of Music and Performer Diploma), and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (Bachelor of Music).
