Welcome to the official website of Tim Callicrate, Lake Tahoe's pianist extraordinaire. Take home a memory - a Serenade from Tahoe - today.
A native of Portland, Oregon, Tim has enjoyed
a lifelong love of music and musical theatre. He attended the University of
Portland and graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Communications/Business
Management. Upon graduation, he toured the Orient with the Department of Defense
on a USO tour as El Gallo in the off-broadway musical the Fantasticks. Little
did Tim realize that his short visit to the lake later that summer would not
be his last. He flew down to play a friend's 21st birthday party in 1985,
and decided to stay; twenty-six years later, he still enjoys the majesty and
spectacular natural beauty of Lake Tahoe throughout the year. Continuing his love of education, Tim earned an additional BS degree in Entrepreneurship, his Nevada State Teaching credentials and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Sierra Nevada College in 2006. Along with student tutoring and mentoring, Tim continues to introduce the undergraduates to George Whittell's Thunderbird Lodge Historic District where he has been a volunteer docent for 11 years.
The musical selections on these CDs represent his most requested songs. They showcase a great cross-section from the timeless classics in the standard piano repertoire, as well as current Pop and Broadway with a smattering of Country and New Age.
