The one-hour concert, scheduled for 16 March 2024, Saturday at VivoCity Amphitheatre, combines the talents of the SPF Band and the heartfelt theme of heroism.

Attendees can expect an evening filled with captivating performances, engaging visuals and a shared appreciation for the Home Team officers among us.
