Song for KyoAni Played at High School Baseball Competition

Song for KyoAni Played at High School Baseball Competition

   Nishinomiya, Hyogo Pref., Aug. 13 (Jiji Press)--The brass band club of a high school in Kyoto Prefecture, western Japan, played a song with deep connections to Kyoto Animation Co. in a national baseball championship game on Tuesday to cheer for the school's baseball team and show support for the company's arson-hit studio.
   Ritsumeikan Uji Senior High School's brass band club played "Dream Solister," the theme song of "Sound! Euphonium," a popular anime title produced by Kyoto Animation, in the team's game against Seiryo Senior High School at Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, also western Japan.
   Ritsumeikan Uji and the company's headquarters are both located in Uji in Kyoto.
   The performance of the up-tempo song is meant not just to cheer for baseball players but to heal the broken hearts of people related to Kyoto Animation and anime fans following the arson attack in the city of Kyoto, which killed 35 people last month.
   Some 80 students, consisting of members of Ritsumeikan Uji's brass band club and those of Ritsumeikan Uji Junior High School's, played multiple songs including Dream Solister in the third-base stands of the stadium.
