Bringing the arts to communities in need through Limelight

Montfort Secondary School Military Band
Montfort Military Band had its beginnings as part of the scouts troop and eventually growing into a full-fledged brass band. In the 1960s, with many schools establishing their own marching bands, the Montfort Military Band made the transition to become a marching band as well.

In 1966, the band took part in the first National Day Parade. In 1968, the Montfort Military Band won top position at the Central Judging of Singapore's School Bands.
Today, the band continues to be a platform to groom budding musicians. Apart from school performances, the band has also performed at other platforms such as the 2023 Chinese New Year Open House at the Istana and Schools-in-Concert in 2022.
Following the spirit of excellence of its pioneers, the band is continually striving for perfection and committed to developing outstanding musicians. In recent years, the band has consistently been awarded the Certificate of Distinction at the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation for Concert Bands.
