Every year, OVFF presents many fine concerts.
There is the Pegasus Award Nominees concert on Friday night. On Saturday, there is the Toastmaster concert, the GoH concert, the InterFilk guest concert, and even occasionally one given by the Honored Listener as well as concerts given by other members of the filk community. On Sunday, there is the New Voices concert and the Chamberfilk workshop ensemble also performs.
There are also concerts given by other members of the filk community.
Pegasus Nominees Concert
The Pegasus Award Nominees concert is held every year at OVFF on Friday
night. At this concert, all of the songs nominated in the "Best Filk
Song", "Best Classic Filk Song", and that year's two rotating
categories (this year, it's "Best Mad Science Song" and "Best
Magic Song") are presented; sometimes by the composer, sometimes by
other performers. This affords OVFF attendees one last chance to hear the
songs before they vote.
The final ballots for the Pegasus Award for Excellence in Filking are then cast, and the Pegasus committee then counts the votes, along with those ballots cast by filkers throughout the world via on-line or mail-in balloting, and only then is it known who will win the Pegasus this year.
One-Shots / Twofers
For those who do not have a concert, but have songs or other performance
pieces that they want to share with the entire convention, there are the
One-Shots and Twofers.
Because of the level of interest in performing at OVFF, slots are handed
out by a random draw. Sign-up sheets for the one-shots will be at the registration table.
OVFF's Taping Policy
Individuals are welcome
to record tapes of performances on the concert stage and in the open filks for their
own private use as long as
the recording is unobtrusive and the performer's
implied permission is
given. Performers have the
option of announcing,
"Please donÉt record me"
prior to their performance, and we expect everyone to comply with their wishes. Failure to do so will have negative results.
If you are interested in taping this year's convention for commercial
reproduction, please write us for a bid package.
