The Picquet Music Festival presented by the Kiwanis Club of the Sandhills was held Wednesday, April 20, at Penick Village, in Southern Pines. Named after a Kiwanis club member, Charles Picquet, this annual music festival is a competition for the most talented high school students in Moore County. Thanks to the generous support of the local Kiwanis chapter, scholarships are awarded to the top 3 students, as judged by a panel of professional musicians. This year’s winners are Austyn Copper, 1st Place (flute); Suzannah Davis (tenor saxophone), 2nd Place; and Madeline Mabe, 3rd Place (viola).
