Every year, OVFF presents many fine concerts.
On Friday night we present our famous Pegasus Award Nominees Concert. On Sunday the annual Chamberfilk workshop ensemble also performs. Over the course of the weekend we will also hear concerts from our Guest of Honor, Toastmaster, and Interfilk Guest. There are also usually concerts from a New Voices Guest, a couple of rounds of One-Shots; and a few concerts from 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 floating
categories (see the Pegasus page for details) 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.
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 several slots for One-Shot performances from the main stage.
Because of the level of interest in performing at OVFF, slots are handed
out by a random draw. Ballots 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 don't record me" prior to their performance, and we expect everyone to comply with their wishes. Failure to do so will have negative results.
In addition, permission to record private conversations is never assumed to be given. If you happen to record one, please delete it!
If you are interested in taping this year's convention for commercial
reproduction, please write us for a bid package.
