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. Finjan returns to the WSO with traditional works and Sid Robinovitch's Suite for Klezmer Band and Orchestra. To life? Finjan!
