Freshman Kane Thompson, a student at the Tahoe Truckee School of Music, won the Truckee High School Talent Show on Jan. 16 in the Truckee High theater.

There were 11 acts composed of singers, dancers, piano players, a violinist, horn players, guitar players, xylophone players and a drummer, and a poetry reading.

It was a rare win for a freshman. The seniors could not recall this happening in their four years at Truckee High.

Kane has been studying piano at the nonprofit Tahoe Truckee School of Music on Meadow Way in Truckee with instructors Sean McAlindin and Jody Sweet.

There were three student judges and three teacher judges. All Truckee High students were welcome to audition. There were cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Kane won with his blues riffs composition.
