Set up on 2nd March 1953 as a bugle, fife and drum band, It became Singapore's first school military band in 1957 and evolved into a concert band in the mid-1980s. Over the years, the Saint Patrick’s School Military Band has established itself as one of the most outstanding secondary school bands in Singapore. With the sustained records of achievements over the years, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has recognized and awarded Saint Patrick’s School Military Band as a Niche Programme School in 2007. In the recent Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) 2021 Arts Presentation, Saint Patrick’s School Military Band continued to maintain the standard of excellence and added on to our 16 consecutive distinctions; a feat achieved through our Patricians’ hard work and passion for music.

Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation 2019
In 2019, the band participated in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation at the Singapore Conference Hall on 9th April, only a week after our Limelight concert. We achieved the highest level of attainment – the Certificate of Distinction - our 15th consecutive distinction.
Limelight is a concert series where some of the best school choirs and bands in Singapore are invited to perform at the Esplanade Concert Hall. The SPS Military band had the privilege of being a part of this concert series and the response to our performance was tremendous, with more than 1,100 people in attendance. We presented a diverse repertoire of different genres of music, consisting of Don't Stop Me Now, a popular pop song by Queen, an instrumental jazz fusion composition, Spain, St. Elmo's Fire and many more.
