Be charmed by the band as you embark together on this musical tour.

Formed in 1994, the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Central Band embodies a core group of dedicated professional musicians, supplemented by musically competent full-time National Servicemen. The band has been providing quality music to major State and SAF functions, parades and ceremonies.
Besides being an integral part of the National Day Parades, the band also actively performs in public concerts and annual charity productions. In its endeavour to promote a zeal for music in the general public, the band also collaborates with the National Arts Council to promote music in schools and institutions.

Striving towards the highest musical standards, it has been the band's vision to be ranked amongst the world's finest military bands. Through music excellence, the SAF Central Band will continue to project itself as the epitome of professionalism in the performing arts arena. As the music ambassador of the SAF, the SAF Central Band also seeks to foster closer relations with the local and international populace.
