Lyria sees Robertina walking outside and, taken with her mysterious behavior, decides to follow along. They arrive at a shrine where Robertina offers a prayer, explaining why she took up the tuba.
The Sky Philharmonic Orchestra is the most influential of all the musical ensembles in the sky.
(Captain) and company are providing security for the orchestra during its 100th anniversary concert tour.
Narita: There are four entrances into the venue: the main and side entrance, and two more in the back.
The crew is being shown around by Narita. He's a disciple of the orchestra's music director and conductor emeritus, Nobiyo.
Vyrn: So we just need to man these four entrances!
Lyria: Hmm... I think we can pull this off if we all work together!
Narita: The back entrances are only for staff, but it wouldn't hurt to play it safe.
Narita: Ah, that reminds me! The rehearsal's about to begin. Would you like to have a look?
Vyrn: Sure, that sounds fun!
Lyria: Ooh, I want to see it too!
Narita: Great! Please follow me.
Narita leads them to the seats with the clearest view of the entire stage.
Orchestra members buzz around onstage prepping for rehearsal.
Vyrn: (Ooh, they're about to start!)
Lyria: (Wow, that's a lot of people!)
Narita: That's Novei. She leads the first violin section as the concertmaster.
Narita points to a girl giving instructions to the others onstage.
Novei: Is everyone ready?
Augusta: Haha, you won't last during the real performance if you're already nervous at rehearsal.
Pamela: Ah... Uh, okay!
Augusta: Well, that's not much different, is it? C'mon, relax, Pamela.
Cecile: I've been ready.
Robertina: How about a snack, then?
Cecile: Hm? Sure, I'll take it.
Novei: Ahem, one last thing before we start.
The others straighten their posture at her serious tone.
Novei: Our performance the other day went well. It was our first time performing under the new system, but we've been getting fantastic reviews thanks to everyone's best efforts.
Novei: The big 100th anniversary concert is next, so let's up the ante and give them a truly unforgettable experience!
Novei: Now, please begin tuning.
The sound of instruments tuning harmoniously fills the tranquil concert hall.
Just then, an imposing figure appears before the performers.
Narita: That's Nobiyo, the conductor emeritus of our orchestra.
Vyrn: Hey, he seems like a really nice guy!
Lyria: I thought it would be someone really scary.
Nobiyo's ears perk up at the sounds of the orchestra warming up.
However, the tuning stops when the members notice Nobiyo.
Nobiyo: It's fine, keep playing.
Novei: Um, well, I thought you would be leading...
Nobiyo: Oh? Is it my turn?
Novei: If you would do the honors.
Nobiyo clears his throat.
Nobiyo: Well, if you insist. Let me hear your melody.
Nobiyo flashes a smile at Novei.
Nobiyo: All set?
Nobiyo gets into position on the podium and checks with Novei.
Novei lets out a deep breath and begins playing at the exact moment Nobiyo begins waving his baton.
The entire orchestra begins playing in perfect unison, enveloping (Captain) and company in a glorious homophony.
The dynamic sounds from Novei's violin serve as a guidepost for the other members.
The gentle and warm accompaniment from Augusta's cello embraces Novei's melody.
Cecile holds a commanding presence with her piercing high notes.
Pamela, on the other hand, fills the concert hall with a soft, pleasant treble.
Robertina supports the others with a rich, deep bass that elevates the performance to heavenly heights.
Absorbed in the beautiful harmony, the rehearsal comes to a close all too soon.
(Captain) and company remain speechless for a few moments, astounded by the breathtaking performance.
Vyrn: Whoa! That was amazing... I don't know much about music, but you guys rock!
Lyria: Wow... Wasn't that incredible, (Captain)? I loved it, Narita!
Narita: Ah, why, thank you!
Nobiyo hasn't moved an inch from the podium.
Novei: Um, Nobiyo?
Nobiyo: Good work, everyone. That'll be it for today.
Novei: Thank you.
Nobiyo: Ah, right. Come see me later, Novei.
Nobiyo walks off the stage with an upbeat smile.
Novei: Great job, everyone.
Novei: All section leaders meet up later backstage.
Cecile: Well, I'll see you guys soon.
Augusta: Today's rehearsal ended pretty fast.
Robertina: My shoulders are stiff.
Pamela: Will you be okay?
Robertina: Yeah, it always gets like this.
One by one, they clear the stage of their instruments and leave the premises.
Narita: Um, do you guys have some time after this?
Vyrn: Hm? Sure, but what for?
Narita: Well, I was thinking of introducing you all to the orchestra members.
Lyria: Yes, I'd love to talk to everyone!
Narita: Very well, I'll introduce you once they're done.
Narita gives the orchestra members some time to rest before bringing in (Captain) and company.
Meanwhile, the section leaders meet up backstage to reflect on the day's events.
Novei: Again, great job today.
Cecile: You too, Novei.
Robertina: I can have one of those snacks, right?
Augusta: Go for it! I'll grab one too!
Novei: So does anyone have anything to say about today's performance?
Pamela timidly speaks up.
Pamela: Um, not to be a wet blanket, but...
Pamela: Well, I was wondering if we'd really be okay going on like this...
Cecile: What do you mean by that? Our performance today was no different than usual.
Pamela: I don't know how to say this...
Novei: It's okay. Speak your mind.
Augusta: Pamela can be really perceptive.
Augusta: Did you notice something we didn't?
Robertina: You know, I'm not really in the mood for snacks after all...
Augusta: Yeah, you barely touched anything on your plate, Tina.
Cecile: Enough about the snacks.
Cecile: Pamela, tell us what you're thinking. Take all the time you need.
Pamela: Thank you, Cecile.
Pamela: We're rehearsing for a concert tour to celebrate the founding of this orchestra. That's a far cry from our usual performances.
Pamela: I'm really feeling the pressure, more so than ever.
Pamela: Also, it's going be the legendary Nobiyo who'll be conducting us, not Narita like we're used to.
Pamela: I'm kind of scared how this might go. Or maybe, I'm just feeling impatient.
Cecile: Well... The orchestra did feel a little different today.
Augusta: Now that you mention it, the cellos in my section did seem a bit stiff.
Robertina: Ah, no wonder there are so many snacks left over.
Novei is entrenched in deep thought.
Novei: Thank you, Pamela.
Novei: I know how you feel, Pamela. Touring the skies with Nobiyo has always been my dream.
Novei: We have to do absolutely everything we can to make it turn out well.
Novei: My heart's been racing, telling me we have to surpass our current selves—
Just then, they hear a knock on the door followed by Narita and the crew walking in.
Narita: Oh, sorry. Were you in the middle of a meeting?
Novei: No, it's all right.
Novei: Who are those people behind you?
Narita: (Captain) here leads a brilliant crew of skyfarers.
Narita: They've been assigned to protect us on our concert tour across the skies.
Narita proceeds with the introductions.
Lyria: We watched your rehearsal just now!
Lyria: And it was incredible!
Vyrn: It was so good it brought tears to my eyes!
(Captain) nods in agreement.
Novei: Haha, I'm glad to hear that. Thanks.
Novei: I'm Novei, concertmaster of this orchestra. It's nice to meet you.
Cecile: Greetings, Captain. I'm Cecile and I play the trumpet.
Augusta: Augusta here. I play the cello.
Augusta: It's impressive seeing so many youths as skyfarers!
Pamela: Um, I'm Pamela. I play the flute. It's a pleasure to meet you.
Robertina: My name's Robertina. I play the tuba and love snacks of all kind.
Lyria: Yay! I love snacks too!
Robertina: Really? Would you like one of these then?
Lyria: Hurray! Thank you so much!
Vyrn: Haha, looks like you have a new snacking buddy, Lyria!
Lyria: Yes! We'll do our best to support everyone and make the tour a success!
The crew and orchestra members finish exchanging greetings.
Novei: Do you girls have any plans after this?
Cecile: I'm going straight home. See you all tomorrow.
Robertina: I have something to take care of. Bye.
Augusta: Well, if everyone's leaving, I guess I'm leaving too.
Pamela: Um, I'm going to stay and practice.
Novei: All right, good night everyone. See you here tomorrow.
Narita: Thanks for visiting today, (Captain). Feel free to walk around the premises as you please.
Vyrn: Well, what should we do now, (Captain)?
The crew uses its free time to get to know the orchestra members better.
As they take a stroll through the streets, they spot the tubist Robertina in the distance.
Choose: Call out to Robertina.
- Call out to Robertina.
- Quietly follow her.
Robertina: Oh, hey. It's you guys.
Robertina: Were you looking for me?
Lyria: Umm... There's something we wanted to ask you.
Robertina: Oh yeah? Here's some snacks for you.
Lyria: For us? Really?
Robertina: Have at it. They're my favorite kind these days.
Robertina passes the snacks over to (Captain) and company.
Vyrn: You're giving me some, too? Thanks!
Lyria: Nom nom nom... Anyway... Chomp... What were you up to out here, Robertina?
I was just taking a walk as usual... except I have somewhere to drop by today.
Vyrn: In that case, is it okay if we tag along?
Robertina: Sure, that's fine. It'll be fun.
Robertina: If you need to leave early, that's fine too.Choose: Quietly follow her.
Vyrn: I'm not sure what she's up to, but it looks fun!
Lyria: Is... is it really okay for us to be doing this?
The crew decides to follow her on a whim.
But their cover is quickly blown as Robertina notices something is afoot.
Robertina stops in her tracks.
Robertina: Hm, something smells fishy.
Vyrn: (Uh-oh, did she notice us?)
Lyria: (We'd better apologize!)
Robertina turns around in one swift motion.
Robertina: Oh. It's you guys.
Robertina: If you were anyone else, I would have to knock you out.
Robertina fiercely swings her tuba around.
Vyrn: (She's stronger than she looks...)
Robertina: No biggie though. Catch you all later!
Lyria: Hey, wait!
Robertina: Hm? Is there something else you wanted?
Lyria: Um, wanna chat a little?
Robertina: Snackie snack?
Robertina: Just felt like saying that.
Lyria: Snackie... snack?
Robertina: Just giving you a hard time.
Vyrn: Uh... okay?
Robertina: I have something to take care of. But you're welcome to tag along if you want to talk.Continue 1
The crew follows Robertina for a jaunt in town.
When they arrive in front of a what seems like a shrine, Robertina slowly gets down in a prostrate position.
Vyrn: Uh, (Captain)? What's happening here?
Lyria: Feeling tired? Are you an early riser, Robertina?
Robertina: No, no. I actually go to sleep pretty late.
Robertina: I get my energy from the mystical power of the land itself.
Robertina: Focus, like this, and you'll feel it too.
Robertina closes her eyes and meditates.
With a smug look on her face, Robertina winks at the crew.
Vyrn: Uh... okay...
Robertina: The sky, the tuba, and you... Three entities, once separate, united as one. You can feel it, can't you?
Lyria: Yes! I can feel the power welling up inside me!
Robertina: Heh. You've got a knack for this, Lyria.
Robertina: We're moving on!
Lyria: Right behind you, Robertina!
Robertina: You can call me Tina.
Lyria: Right behind you, Tina!
Robertina: That's Miss Tina to you!
Lyria: Of course, Miss Tina!
Vyrn: Huh? (Why are they getting along so well all of a sudden?)
And so Robertina and Lyria's intense training session begins.
Robertina: One... Two... Three...
Lyria: Four... Five... Six...
Side by side with Robertina, Lyria begins working out.
Vyrn: Um, what am I looking at, exactly?
Lyria: Yikes! This isn't easy, Miss Tina!
Robertina: Good work, Lyria! Let me take it the rest of the way!
Lyria gives up, but Robertina pushes onward.
Robertina: Ninety-eight... Ninety-nine... One hundred!
Lyria: You did it, Miss Tina!
Robertina: Huff... wheeze...
Robertina: Am I good or what?
Lyria: You're good, Miss Tina!
The two hug each other, spirits lifted from their awe-inspiring workout.
Vyrn and (Captain) can only watch quietly from the sidelines.
Vyrn: So, uh, why did Robertina start working out all of a sudden?
Robertina: I have to stay fit to use my tuba. It's the heaviest instrument in the brass family.
Robertina: If I didn't keep up my routine, I'd have trouble just holding it up.
Lyria: You're really something, Miss Tina!
(Maybe you should've picked a smaller instrument?)
Vyrn: If you're willing to go that far, you must have a good reason for choosing the tuba.
Robertina: Actually, you could say I never chose the tuba.
Robertina: The tuba... chose me.
Vyrn: Bwuh? What's that supposed to mean?
Robertina: It's a long story, but...
Lyria: Gulp... Is Miss Tina's past about to be revealed?
Robertina: One day, a tuba fell from the skies.
Vyrn: That's it?
Robertina: I've played the tuba every day since then.
Vyrn: That's impressive, but...
Robertina: The voice of the tuba god led me to where I am today.
Lyria: Oh, to speak with the tuba god... How wonderful!
Robertina: Faith and prayer have been inseparable from music since time immemorial.
Robertina: Is there anything you believe in, Lyria?
Lyria: Um, I've never really thought about it, but I definitely believe in (Captain)!
Robertina: Hahaha! Tough to keep you two apart, huh?
Robertina: Anyway, why don't you offer a prayer to the tuba god, too?
Vyrn: Okay! Let's pray for a safe journey!
Lyria: And I'll pray for your successful concert tour!
Robertina: Hehe, thanks.
Robertina shows a perky smile as she saunters into the shrine.
Robertina: Follow me. I'll show you how it's done.
Lyria: By all means!
Vyrn: We should get in there too, (Captain)!
And thus, the first day of rehearsal comes to a close.
(Captain) and company return to the Grandcypher, eager to hear the music awaiting them on the following day.
Tuba God of the Sacred Peaks
Robertina is driven by Nobiyo to recall the emotions that led her to become a musician. With the help of the crew, Robertinta heads for the sacred mountain in her hometown.
(Captain) and company once again visit the concert hall to watch the orchestra rehearse.
The crew and Narita watch the proceedings from the auditorium seats.
Novei: All right, let's give it our all today, everyone.
Cecile: (Ugh, my head hurts. I should've gone to bed earlier...)
Augusta: (Haha, yesterday was a blast!)
Robertina: (Ouch, my muscles are still sore. I must've strained myself...)
Pamela: (All that practice came in handy and I'll show it today!)
Nobiyo appears before the orchestra members.
Novei: Good morning.
Novei: We've finished warming up. We can begin at any moment.
Nobiyo: Good, thanks.
Nobiyo stands on the podium, and after taking a long look at all the faces onstage, begins speaking.
Nobiyo: All of you seated here today possess extraordinary talent.
Nobiyo: You were chosen because you are the cream of the crop.
Nobiyo: But you know, music is a strange thing. Even if the performance is awful, it can still touch the hearts of the listeners.
Nobiyo: Why do you think that is?
Nobiyo gazes into the eyes of each member in the orchestra.
Nobiyo: It all comes down to emotion. There's emotion in every beat of music, and that is what touches us.
Nobiyo: I believe that when it all comes together as an unrelenting cascade of emotion...
Nobiyo: That, is when the most sublime of music is born.
Nobiyo: Which is why I'm going to ask you all to try to remember the emotions that led you on to the path of a musician.
Nobiyo: I want you all to seize the emotions that exist in each and every one of you, and create the most magnificent music you possibly can.
An ineffable silence fills the concert hall.
Nobiyo: I'm sorry to throw this on you so soon before the tour.
Nobiyo: But I get the feeling this is precisely what we're in need of right now.
Nobiyo: Well, that's it for today's rehearsal.
Nobiyo: Narita, I'll leave the rest to you.
Narita: Of course!
Nobiyo bows to (Captain) and company on his way out.
Nobiyo: I'm sorry to drag you guys into this, but...
Nobiyo: If it's not too much to ask, will you support them in this endeavor?
(Captain) nods reassuringly.
Nobiyo: Thank you.
Nobiyo continues his way out of the concert hall.
The orchestra members are bewildered at the sudden development.
Narita: I'll send everyone further details as we go on, but you're dismissed for now.
Narita: And I need the section leaders to gather backstage.
Novei: Okay, let's clear the stage!
A weighty atmosphere fills the room backstage as the section leaders enter.
Novei: The emotions we felt when we first decided to pursue this path?
Cecile: So basically, we just have to remember and seize whatever that was?
Cecile: Seems like a hassle, but we'll just have to step it up.
Augusta: I'll have to visit my parents at their shop.
Pamela: I want to see what my parents think too...
Cecile: So you two are going to see your parents. Come to think of it, I got into music through my family too...
Robertina: Then I'm going to go meet the gods.
Cecile: The gods? What's that supposed to mean?
Robertina: Heehee, I just need to meet the tuba god.
Robertina speaks with a fearless smile.
Cecile: Heh, I dunno about that. It sounds like something you'd say though.
Cecile: As for me, I suppose I'll be taking a trip back to the countryside.
Cecile: I'm sure you've got a plan, Novei.
Novei: Yes, there's a place I'll have to visit too. Thank you, Cecile.
Cecile: Nah, I didn't do anything special.
Cecile: It's just that I'd hate it if I wasn't able to help any of you succeed.
Cecile: Here's the deal: failure is not an option. Always get back up if you fall. That's what I believe.
Cecile: It's all-or-nothing, girls.
The others smile at Cecile's little motivational speech.
Meanwhile, an apologetic Narita appears before the crew.
Narita: I hate to ask for so many favors, but I have to stay here to handle preparations for the concert tour.
Narita: (Captain), would it be possible for you to help the girls on their journey?
Vyrn: You bet! We travel everywhere and we'll have no trouble getting them around!
Novei: Thank you so much, (Captain).
Lyria: Let's go then, (Captain)!
The crew accompanies the girls on their journey.
Robertina: All right! Let's get going!
Vyrn: Huh? Where to?
Robertina: We were talking about what got me into music, right?
Robertina: So obviously we're going to visit the tuba god.
Vyrn: How is that going to help?
Robertina: Truth be told, I haven't really felt at home with the sound of my tuba lately.
Robertina: If I meet with the tuba god again, it might reinvigorate my tuba energies.
Lyria: Really? Let's go meet up with him, then!
Vyrn: Where can we find this tuba god, anyway?
Robertina: In a sacred mountain not too far from my hometown!
Lyria: Okay! Let's get going, (Captain)!
Vyrn: Woo-hoo! Time to head out!
The crew steers the Grandcypher toward Robertina's hometown. They have a tuba god to meet.
Tuba God of the Sacred Peaks: Scene 2
When a giant roc at the sacred mountain causes trouble for Robertina, she whacks it with her tuba. Snacks come flying out of the instrument, explaining why the tuba hadn't been sounding quite right. Robertina puts it down to the providence of the tuba god.
Robertina and the crew land on a perilous, sacred mountain.
Robertina: Whew... Just like I remember it.
Lyria: Wow, Miss Tina! These steep cliffs really give off a sacred mountain vibe!
Robertina: If you say so. I used to play around here when I was younger.
Vyrn: (So this is where Robertina built up her physical fitness...)
Vyrn: Where exactly did you meet this tuba god?
Robertina: Follow me.
Robertina leads the way.
After a long walk, they arrive at a small hilltop with a beautiful view.
Robertina: We're here. Ah, this brings back memories.
Robertina looks at the skies nostalgically.
Robertina: I was trying to see how loud I could get my voice to echo.
Robertina: That's when a tuba suddenly fell from the skies.
Lyria: Why don't you see how loud your echo is now, Miss Tina?
Robertina gives Lyria a thumbs-up.
Then she takes a deep breath and yells as loud as she can.
Her shout causes the earth around them to tremble.
Beasts in the surrounding mountains roar. Flocks of birds begin to soar.
In the next instant, a black shadow suddenly dwarfs the crew.
Vyrn: Hoo boy!
Lyria: Wh-wh-what is that?
Robertina is at a loss for words.
Robertina: A bird fell from the sky this time?
The roc picks up Robertina with its beak and flies away.
Robertina: This must be the tuba god guiding me...
Vyrn: Oh my gosh! That roc just took Robertina away!
Lyria: We have to go after her before it's too late, (Captain)!
The crew desperately chases after the roc and arrives at a cave that's been turned into a bird's nest.
Vyrn: Gulp... They should be in here, but...
Lyria trips on some rubble, but (Captain) leaps to the rescue.
Lyria: T-thanks! There sure is a lot of shiny stuff lying around here.
The crew finally catches up with Robertina in the depths of the cave.
Robertina: Aha! I get it now! You must be a messenger of the tuba god.
Robertina: I've gotten really good! Here, let me play you a song!
The roc begins pecking at Robertina's head accessory.
Robertina: Hey, stop that!
Robertina: That tickles!
The crew gets the mistaken impression that Robertina is under attack and rushes to her aid.
Vyrn: Stop right there and give us Robertina back!
Lyria: If you hurt Miss Tina, you'll regret it!
Robertina: Oh, it's you guys!
The roc, thinking the crew to be invaders, suddenly turns hostile.
Robertina: Watch out!
Robertina quickly swings her tuba at the roc.
Robertina: Oh no, I'm so sorry! I hope that didn't hurt too much!
Robertina's swing leaves the roc unconscious. At that moment, something flies out of the tuba and into Lyria's hands.
Lyria: Ah! Is this what I think it is?
Vyrn: Hm, what's that?
Lyria looks curiously at the familiar object.
Lyria: It's one of your favorite snacks, Miss Tina!
Robertina: You're kidding!
Vyrn: Well, I guess that explains why your tuba sounded off.
Robertina: So that's what happened...
Robertina: I knew I was right to follow the guidance of the tuba god!
Vyrn: (Sigh, all you had to do was give that thing a good cleaning...)
Robertina: Let's see...
Robertina affectionately blows into the tuba.
A melodious sound fills the caves with an endearing warmth.
Roc: Kaw kaw!
Even the recovered roc squawks in peace.
Robertina: This is surely a decree from the tuba god. He wants me to continue performing.
Robertina plays the tuba as happily as she did the first time she picked it up all those years ago.
Her journey has restored the tuba to its original glory.
With newfound confidence, Robertina excitedly returns for the concert tour.
Tuba God of the Sacred Peaks: Scene 3
All members of the Sky Philharmonic Orchestra return from their mini-adventures just in time for opening day of the 100th anniversary concert tour. They each perform with renewed passion, signifying a rebirth of the orchestra.
It's a full house on the opening day of the Sky Philharmonic Orchestra's 100th anniversary concert tour.
Narita: We're about to start and our section leaders have not returned. This is unprecedented!
Nobiyo: Oh relax. It'll be fine, since it's those kids.
Narita: How can you say it's fine! There's only ten minutes left!
Nobiyo: If worst comes to worst, we'll just have to step in and keep the crowd entertained.
Narita: What? But we've never prepared for anything like that!
Nobiyo: Well, I did kind of lord it over them.
Nobiyo: It's only fair that I take some responsibility, you know?
Narita: Sigh, I just hope this doesn't backfire.
Nobiyo: Well then, shall we get in there and warm up the crowd with an impromptu act?
Narita: We have our hands full with conducting; how are we going to pull off an impromptu act!
Just as Nobiyo tries to drag Narita onstage, a clamor suddenly arises from the crowd.
The two look out into the audience to see the orchestra section leaders and the crew, out of breath, cutting across the auditorium seats.
Novei: Sorry, passing through!
Augusta: Hey, hey! Make way, please!
Robertina: Phew, I'm tired from running.
Augusta: How about I carry you there, Tina?
Robertina: No thanks. I'm not a kid, you know.
Pamela: Ah! Tina, you dropped your snacks!
Cecile: Pamela! Are you okay?
Cecile immediately lifts Pamela up in her arms.
Pamela: Thanks, Cecile...
Vyrn: Go, go, go, the stage is right there! We can do this!
Lyria: I wonder if it was okay for us to come along like this, (Captain).
(Captain) grabs her arm and leaps on to the stage.
Nobiyo: Hahaha, this is too good!
Nobiyo: It's as if we've already reached the crescendo!
Narita: Whew, talk about a close one! I guess I was worried for nothing.
The section leaders find their seats.
(Captain) and company spot Nobiyo and Narita on the stage wing and rush over to them.
Narita: (Captain)! How is everyone?
Lyria: They're ready to go!
Nobiyo: Haha, I could already tell from your faces!
Vyrn: They did their best out there! You'll hear it in their performances!
The crew has felt for themselves the emotions that led the section leaders down the path of music.
They wish for the audience to experience those very same emotions.
Nobiyo: Well, it looks like they've finished tuning. I'd better get up there.
Narita: We've kept the fans waiting long enough!
Narita: Go get 'em, Nobiyo!
Nobiyo: Well, let's get this show on the road!
A thunderous applause shakes the concert hall the moment Nobiyo appears onstage.
Narita looks on with admiration at the world-renowned Nobiyo.
Vyrn: Hey, Narita. Why did you decide to study under Nobiyo?
Narita: Hmm, well...
Narita chooses his words carefully.
Narita: I guess it's because Nobiyo is someone who truly believes music can change the world for the better.
Lyria: Hm, change the world with music...?
Narita: Yes. Anyone who's ever attended a performance conducted by Nobiyo would say the same thing.
Narita: Music transports us to another world—it takes us on an unforgettable journey that stays with us.
Narita: Even when we return to our normal lives, we find ourselves more optimistic than before.
Narita: It's almost like a magic spell that never wears off.
Lyria: How fantastic! He's like a wizard of music!
On stage, Nobiyo makes eye contact with each member of the orchestra.
Nobiyo: (Well then, are we ready to play the most incredible music the audience has ever heard?)
Novei: (Absolutely! Let's do this, everyone!)
Pamela: (I'm ready to go!)
Augusta: (100th anniversaries don't come all that often. Might as well enjoy it while it lasts!)
Robertina: (I'm gonna party all night with snacks when this is over.)
Cecile: (I was born ready! Let's totally knock their socks off!)
Nobiyo gets into position on the podium and checks with Novei.
Novei lets out a deep breath and begins playing at the exact moment Nobiyo begins waving his baton.
The entire orchestra begins playing in perfect unison, enveloping the audience in a glorious homophony.
The indescribably transcendent music stirs emotions deep within the audience.
Individual undertones from each member begin to stand out, filling the concert hall with a dreamlike quality.
On this day, the Sky Philharmonic Orchestra is reborn upon the stage.
