Few knew about klezmer music when Finjan came on the Winnipeg scene 30 years ago. As Canada’s first roots band of its type, Finjan paved the way for a klezmer and Yiddish music revival. The band has produced five award-winning discs, toured North America countless times and has performed with Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion, the Lonesome Pine Specials on PBS and in the movie The Outside Chance of Maximillian Glick. To life? Finjan!
The program includes traditional klezmer works such as S’vivon, sov, sov, sov, Bukovinska Polka, Kolamenka, and Sid Robinovitch’s Suite for Klezmer Band and Orchestra, which the band commissioned and premiered with the WSO.
