Parks Ontario is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, while Point Pelee National Park will be celebrating its 100th.

Among the activities planned this year to celebrate its birthday, Point Pelee will be featuring the Windsor Symphony Orchestra with a newly commissioned work.

The new work entitled “Pelee,” penned by southwestern Ontario composer Jeff Smallman, echoes the distinct sounds of the park’s four seasons.

The WSO perform the World Premiere of Pelee on Saturday, April 28 2018 at the Point Pelee National Park’s Visitor Centre.

The performance has been sold out for months.

“We wanted a piece that not only described the park but also helped to describe the soundscapes in the park in all four seasons, for example, the fall or autumn season is represented by butterfly-like sounds,” Windsor symphony conductor Robert France.

A second performance of the concert program can be heard at the Heritage Auditorium at the University of Windsor on Sunday April 29 at 2:30 p.m.
