ConCerto was a filk convention which was held in the New Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia in 1990 and 1997. Organized by Rick and Carol Kabakjian, it was intended to be an annual convention, but difficulties led to cancellations in 1991 and 1992. MASSFILC organized ConCertino ("a small concerto") in 1992 as an interim replacement. The Second ConCerto in 1997 was run by a different group and was intended to join the rotation of the NEFilk conventions, alternating with ConCertino, Conterpoint and Contata. However, the attempt to organize the Third ConCerto failed.
