National All-Ukrainian Music Union - NUMU

The National All-Ukrainian Music Union is one of the oldest and largest professional creative associations of Ukrainian artists. The basis of the All-Ukrainian Music Union was the Music Society named after M.Leontovich , created in 1922 on the initiative of prominent Ukrainian musicians .

In November 1990 in Kiev, at the 5th Congress of the Music Society, a decision was made to reorganize and create on its basis a professional creative organization - the All-Ukrainian Music Union.

Taking into account the merits in asserting the traditions and development of the Ukrainian national culture, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, by its resolution of October 8, 1998, granted the Union the status of "National".

The head of the National All-Ukrainian Music Union is Eugene Savchuk.
