The Black String Triage Ensemble is committed to using music as the healing force for the soul in the immediate aftermath of community violence. The Black String Triage Ensemble plays concerts, for the community at the scene of the incident.
The affliction of hopelessness is exceptionally pervasive in America. Where the primary focus of The Black String Triage Ensemble is fatal shootings, this does not dismiss the need to respond to suicides; opioid deaths; car accidents; infant deaths; and house fires.
To address these life circumstances and conditions, the music has been organized around The 5 stages of grief -denial; anger; bargaining; depression; and acceptance. A sixth stage of grief, faith, has been added at the end. the addition of Faith is symbolic of the belief we as humans must have to move forward in our daily lives.
