This article is a summary of the first phase of a deeper project which aim is to study the socioeconomic dimension of musical societies. To do so, after having highlighted the importance and significance of musical societies in the Valencian Community, we try to frame their complex organizational and institutional delimitation within the theory of non-profit organizations. By doing so, we are able to make explicit most of the characteristics and functions that define musical societies’ activities. Finally, from the characterization of musical societies as non-assistance multiproductive unities, we offer some descriptive notes about the productive aspects of these societies.
