"At the open day, there will be once again instrument stations where our teachers will show people the different instruments and talk to them about what's involved in learning an instrument.
"Then all those instruments will be seen and heard in the casual performances we have happening throughout the day, ranging from primary band students to our adult string ensemble, piano duets, wind trios and vocalists."
There will be two of the all ages performing groups taking to the stage - the Macquarie Intermediate Band and Macquarie Big Band.
