About the Festival


FESTIVAL DATES: AUGUST 3-17, 2024 (arrival on August 2, departure on August 18)



Todi International Music Masters is a Piano Festival founded by Antonio Pompa-Baldi, a world renown concert pianist and piano professor. We are excited to announce that the next festival takes place from August 3 to 17, 2024. Students must plan to arrive in Todi on August 2, and depart on August 18.

As always, for the 2024 Edition of TIMM, all active festival participants will perform with orchestra and in solo recitals, if they choose to do so. Concert pianists and pedagogues of international renown will be working with advanced piano students of all ages in public master classes. Every individual, one-on-one lesson is open to every participant. Attendance of as many classes as possible is highly encouraged. Students will be selected based on a submitted video of their playing, via a YouTube link (Youku is acceptable, as well). There are no age limits for participation. Minors must be accompanied by a parent, teacher, or adult supervisor.


Our goal is to create a fantastic learning experience for all our participants, through great lessons, insightful masterclasses, inspiring concerts by our Masters, and performance opportunities for our students, including playing with an orchestral ensemble.

Our Mission

T.I.M.M. is organized with the needs of our participants in mind. What makes a great festival? We believe it’s the exchange of ideas, close contact and guidance from great teachers, and ample practice time for students to test new ideas and apply them right away to their performances. Our students always come first, and at TIMM we never forget that simple fact.

The faculty and staff at TIMM , and indeed the environment itself, encourage an atmosphere of friendship, collegiality, and inclusion which helps our students bond and feel part of a big family.

The beautiful town of Todi, and its gorgeous surroundings, will make for a unique learning opportunity in an exquisitely artistic and inspiring environment. While immersing themselves in music, our participants will also have the unique experience of walking the streets of medieval Todi, surrounded by centuries-old architecture, and in many cases, incredible buildings and churches dating from over a thousand years ago. In addition to being beautiful, Todi is also a very safe town, and the local gastronomy is world class. So, without hesitation, join us!

TIMM Concerts at Todi Municipal Theater

In 2024, all of TIMM’s Concerts will take place at the beautiful “Teatro Comunale di Todi” (Todi Municipal Theater). The Theater is located literally a few steps away from the Hotel Fonte Cesia, and a two-minute walk from the Palazzo del Vignola, location of the masterclasses and practice facilities.

The “Teatro Comunale di Todi”  (Municipal Theater of Todi), designed by architect Carlo Gatteschi, is a historic Umbrian theater inaugurated on 14 August 1876 with the opera “Un Ballo in maschera” by Giuseppe Verdi. With its 499 seats (orchestra and 4 tiers of boxes) it ranks among the largest theaters in Umbria.

The Theater regularly hosts a prose season, opera, and dance shows.  TIMM is happy to have all its concerts housed in this magnificent venue!
