Introduction. The article examines the activities of the city military commander’s commission in Leningrad from 1941 to 1944. Particular attention is paid to its tasks and forms of work, how they were adapted to the conditions of the front and front-line situation.
Methods. Archival documents and memoirs of the organizers and spectators of the concert activities of Leningrad in 1941-1944 were made as a source base. Based on the consideration of these sources, the method of organizing the city military commander’s commission, its tasks and forms of work in extreme military conditions was studied. The novelty of the study is that the author for the first time examines in detail the system of organization of the city military commander’s commission of Leningrad, its tasks and forms of work in 1941-1944, using unpublished archival documents.
Conclusion. The author concludes that the city military-patronage commission of Leningrad from the first days of the war centralized the work of patronage brigades. Given the martial law, this commission changed the forms of performances and the repertoire, accepted requests and reviews from the front. The speeches of the patronage brigades not only contributed to the popularization of the heroic struggle with the enemy, but also were a means of psychological reaction of the soldiers.
