Haruka Ogasawara (小笠原 晴香 Ogasawara Haruka?) is a character in the Hibike! Euphonium series. She plays the baritone saxophone and serves as the school band's president as well as the saxophone section leader.


Haruka is a girl of average height and build. She has dark brown hair that reaches her shoulders and is tied into two twintails and large golden-brown eyes. She is usually seen with a standard Kitauji High School uniform for third-year students.


Haruka is shown to not be fond of Asuka Tanaka's antics (since they may dissuade potential members from joining the band) but seems to be relatively friendly and matured.

Always in the shadow of Asuka's popularity, she constantly questions her own merits as the band president. She also battles insecurity due to her inability to stop the schism of the previous year from transpiring. Despite that she is very responsible and committed.


She first appears in Episode 1 as the director of the school's concert band, reprimanding Asuka for her behavior towards Kumiko, Sapphire, and Hazuki.


  • In the light novel, Haruka is referred to as "Ogasawara" at the descriptive parts in the original novel.
  • Haruka (晴香?) means "sunny weather" and "fragrance"
