Consonance, The San Francisco Bay Area Filk Convention, March 22 to March 24, 2024 - at Hilton Santa Clara, 4949 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara CA

What is Consonance Exactly?

A filk music convention.

Which is to say: a bunch of people who enjoy and/or make and/or play filk music get together in a hotel for a weekend and ... filk, usually until very late into the night.

Debbie Ohi's filk faq is a nice primer on what's going on at a filk convention. Here's a bit more about what filk is.

Consonance is brought to you by Fanfare Music.

Fanfare? What's that?

FanFare Music Inc. is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization founded to promote filk and filk culture through the Consonance filk convention.

What do funds pay for?

The big ticket items are hotel function space (which is very costly in the Bay Area) and guest airfare and hotel rooms. Donations of funds keep Consonance running and affordable, bringing amazing filkers to play for and with us. Donations of time and skill make Consonance happen.
