The study focuses on the historical evaluation of the role of the Ukrainians in interwar Brno's overall cultural environment. The Moravian metropolis played an important part in the lives of the Ukrainian diaspora in Czechoslovakia. Themes in the study are dealt with in two chronologically linked areas – both the production of the Ukrainian artists who visited Brno as guests (Ukrainian republic band in 1919) and the later musical activity connected with federal activities of the Ukrainians settled in Brno are introduced. Ukrainian music production in interwar Brno was, with some exceptions, for a broad audience, it was also for a number of times broadcasted on the Brno radio. Although these musical performances did not quantitatively exceed those in Prague, many of them were of a high artistic level. The study is another piece in mapping of the musical lives of the Ukrainians in interwar Czechoslovakia and it also brings new findings about musical course of events in Brno in the first republic era.
