Hibike! Euphonium Wiki

First Ensemble (はじめてアンサンブル Hajimete Ansanburu) is the third episode of the Hibike! Euphonium anime series. It was first broadcasted on Tuesday, April 21, 2015.


The band begins sectional practice as the new members select their instruments and are taught the basics. Hazuki decides to name her new tuba "Tubacabura" after seeing Midori name her bass "George". Mr. Taki instructs the band to let him know once they are good enough to perform in an ensemble; however, many sections neglect to take their practice seriously, preferring instead to focus on the upcoming Sunrise Festival, an important event that the concert band has traditionally performed at. Midori's question regarding the lack of second-year students is met with uncomfortable silences from the other upperclassmen in the section. The club's first performance as an ensemble goes poorly; Mr. Taki warns the club that unless they improve in a week, they should not even think about performing at SunFes, much less nationals. As dissent towards Mr. Taki grows in the club, practice is cancelled while the section leaders discuss what to do. Reina, frustrated at the turn of events, yells out at the top of her lungs after playing a trumpet solo outside school, much to Kumiko's surprise.
