Soka Renaissance Vanguard wins Prime Minister's Cup

On January 16, the Soka Renaissance Vanguard drum-and-bugle corps won the Prime Minister's Cup (top honors) for the second consecutive year and for the eighth time, at the 32nd national All-Japan Marching Band and Baton Twirling Contest at the Nippon Budokan in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. Titled "The Diamond Mission," the band members fascinated the audience with their breathtaking performance.

Other Soka Gakkai drum and bugle corps that participated in the competition were: the Soka Chubu First Stars, the Soka Okayama Rainbow Sounds and the Soka Kagoshima Southern Blaze.
