Summary/Abstract: Purpose of the work. The article deals with the presentation of own systematization of sociocultural functionsof musical societies in Europe of the XIX – the beginning of the XX centuries. Musical societies of different types as – single field or multi-field, integrated with other directions of cultural and educational activity during the ХІХ century and up to the First World War, sometimes even longer, to the Second World War (what actually happened in Lviv) stayed one of the main centers of spiritual life of the city, and even the country. It seems to be important to summarize and to systematize all reasons, why modest musical amateur societies kept so solid public position during very long term. Methodology. To analyze and to prove the conception of the article the following methods are used: source criticism, that allows to attract the archived material and recreate the functions of musical and music- educational societies; historical and cultural, that allows to trace basic historical pre-conditions of becoming of musical societies and forming of their functions; analytical, that allows to present basic descriptions of the given functions as a component of activity of the musical societies. The scientific novelty. The reason of the whole system of sociocultural functions of musical and musically-educational societies, as one of the main centers of the development of the music culture, becoming of musical professionalism and motivation of national and cultural processes are offered for the first time. Conclusions. The marked functions, certainly, are highlighted conditionally. For good reason a part of them got metaphorical definitions, showing same way the certain lability, indissoluble connection with other partialness. However, it seemed to be important with their help to show many sides of different spiritual, intellectual, public, ontological aspirations, that were powerful reason for such mass distribution of musical societies in that period, that contained a substantial number of participants. Musical societies of the ХІХ century – the beginning of the ХХ of century, to the First World War, appeared as a unique public and cultural associations, that were naturally integrated into national and public infrastructure as a component that directly influenced other spheres of life.
