LED boards have been erected to show programmes for the 22nd World Police Band Concert to be held in Yangon on October 28 and 29.

Screens installed on Sakura Tower on Bogyoke Aung San Road in Kyauktada Township and at Ganad Company will broadcast the concerts from 9am to 9pm daily, according to the Yangon Region Police Force.

The concerts will boast 276 police officers, including 60 from Japan, 40 from Singapore, 40 from Vietnam and 136 from host Myanmar

Thai police force failed to join the concert due to the Royal Cremation events in the nation. Thai police had originally hoped to be able to make the Yangon concerts.

“We have three objectives for this concert – to show a symbol of peace and security of our host country, to ensure amity and cultural cooperation between Myanmar and international police forces and to cement relations between the public and police forces,” said Police Colonel Myo Thu Soe to a press conference held at Summit Park View Hotel on October 23.

Police forces will be marching on October 28 and a four-country music band will be performing at the Myanmar Convention Centre on Mindhamma Road in Mayangon Township at 7pm on October 29.
