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.
Friday Concert Schedule
Pegasus Nominees Concert
The Pegasus Award Nominees concert is held every year at OVFF on Friday night after the Mad Hatter Tea Party. 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 Gaming Song" and "Best Travel Song") are presented; sometimes by the composer, sometimes by other performers. This affords OVFF attendees one last chance to hear the songs before all voting closes.
Moon Wink & Serenade
Friday night after the Pegasus Concert we are planning a special outdoors filk to honor the memory of Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. Bring your best songs about the moon, the Apollo missions, and space exploration in general to this filksing out under the stars. Peter Alway will be bringing his telescope so everyone can take a close-up and personal look at the man in the moon and give him a wink in honor of Neil as we howl, er, sing at the full moon.

|... and more One-Shots!
For those who do not have a full concert, but have songs or other performance pieces that they want to share with the entire convention, there are the One-Shots.
Because of the level of interest in performing at OVFF, performance slots are awarded by a random drawing. Entry forms for the one-shots drawing will be at the con 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.
