A Croatian pianist will play the Valhalla Boathouse Theatre as part of a 20th anniversary celebration for the lakefront venue this weekend.
The Valhalla Boathouse Theatre 20th Anniversary Fundraiser – Lucky Baldwin Poker Promenade will feature music by Radoslav Lorkovic this Saturday, June 25.
The event “is a rare opportunity for guests to explore Valhalla Tahoe’s heritage through a leisurely poker stroll around the estate and experience a remarkable night of history and entertainment — right on the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe,” according to organizers of the Valhalla Art, Music and Theatre Festival.
The poker promenade will feature various stations around the Tallac Historic Site offering food and drinks, interpretive history and historic figures along with playing cards for event participants. Prizes will be given to the winners with various poker hands. The concert by Lorkovic follows.
“Born in Zagreb, Croatia, Radoslav Lorkovic was just three when he began putting on floor shows for his grandfather and friends,” according to Valhalla. “When he was six, the family moved to the U.S. — and by his teens, classically trained in piano, he was heading toward a life in classical music when the blues sidetracked him and he began to turn his distinctive piano style into a career that has led him to the Canary Islands, Yup’ik villages, the Kennedy Center, and Carnegie Hall.”
Valhalla is located off State Route 89 just west of Camp Richardson.
