MUSIC & DANCE
The Music & Drama Company (MDC) was first formed in 1973 to strengthen the morale of SAF soldiers through live entertainment. It has come a long way from performing on a makeshift stage formed by three-tonners to a highly professional company capable of staging multimedia song and dance performances, musicals, music videos, and much more. Even as MDC evolves, it continues with its proud heritage of performing for soldiers, with soldiers.
Let our in-house team of music wizards help you hit the right note! Our team of musicians, music producers, performers and choreographers from MDC come with an impressive track record of original compositions, choreography and artistic performances to contribute to the success of any campaign.

Here For You
This music video underscores how mental turmoil can find solace in companionship.
Musicians trapped in solitary cages and dancers portraying the “monsters” in our heads, combined with flashing lights, harsh percussive notes and whip-pan camera movements all create the unease and chaos of a troubled psyche.
But peace is regained when everybody comes together to create beautiful, uplifting music. The duet between the violins illustrate friendship, and is a powerful reminder that when we help one another through difficulties, we will feel better, together.
