More about OPUS Music Community Interest Company (OPUS): 


OPUS was established as an incorporated organisation in 2000 and as a Community Interest Company in 2012.  OPUS has become a specialist and UK leader in the delivery, training and advocacy for Music in Healthcare Practice. Alongside a practice of live music-making in numerous health and social care settings over the past 10 years, OPUS delivers highly acclaimed training programmes, developed through European and International partnerships, for professional musicians and for health and care professionals.   


Current Context: 

Whilst OPUS’ practice as Healthcare Musicians has largely been on hold throughout the pandemic so far (apart from practice within Child and Adolescent Mental Health services which has since resumed), OPUS has remained active, creating online resources to support healthcare settings, and exploring online practice and training options. OPUS’ core team of musicians has continued working from home and from COVID secure spaces when possible.  

A Culture Recovery Fund Continuity Support grant, from November 2021 to January, 2022, is supporting OPUS to transition back to a regular in-person/online practice, and to re-package its training offers for musicians and health and care professionals in order to reach more people through this strand of work.
