Jessica Schierkolk named to All-State Band


by Chandler Smith
Hot Springs County High School senior
Jessica Schierkolk has been named to the
Wyoming State band, becoming the rst
HSCHS student in eight years to receive the
prestigious honor.
Schierkolk started playing trumpet eight
years ago and has been playing with teacher
Dustin Olsen the entire time.
The talented trumpet player practiced her
audition piece daily for the months leading
up her audition and beat out over 280 other
players to be named one of the 19 trumpets
on the ensemble.
When he [Olsen] initially told me, I was in
basketball practice. He walked in and I saw
him, and we were doing dribbling drills. He
looked really upset, so I was like, oh crap,
He seriously looked mad, so I went over
and talked to him and he raised his hand,
and I dont even remember what he said,
Schierkolk remembered.
Congratulations, Olsen reminded her.

I almost cried, I jumped around and


hugged him, Schierkolk continued. To be
honest, Id rather make All-State in trumpet
than state in basketball.
Schierkolks years of hard work have paid
off. I feel really accomplished, she said, noting that she worked with Olsen every day
for over an hour just for her audition, even
through the countys rst power outage of
the winter.
Once shes chosen, thats the hardest part.
Now you just work really hard on the music
and have it prepared. The competition part
is essentially over, said Olsen. Around 200
people have been named to the ensemble.
When asked what was next, Olsen said,
Now we wait for music. It should come in next
week. One the music arrives, Schierkolk will
spend all of her free time studying it before
the ensemble gathers in Cheyenne.
Once in Cheyenne with the entire ensemble, Schierkolk will again have to prove her
talent. In the trumpets, there are three dif-

ferent parts, she said. Ill have to do a chair


placement within the second trumpets to decide which seat Im in. Then, once seats are
gured out, the ensemble will practice for
their January 19 concert.
The Hot Springs senior has enlisted in the
Army and will serve after graduation, but
that will not end her trumpet playing career.
I was thinking about playing after I serve
a tour, to see if I can get into the band, she
said. I feel like I personally excel in music,
so I would like to make a career in it, she
said of her post-Army plans.
The band is open to all Wyoming high school
students from grades 9-12. All participants
have to travel to a designated location to record an anonymous audition, which then gets
reviewed by judges. Almost a month after auditions are nished, nalists are contacted.
The ensembles performance is scheduled
for January 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Cheyenne
South High School. The program is run by the
Wyoming High School Activities Association.
