Meet the Makers | Collaborate

We hope you can join us for the next Makers Series evening this Friday, February 27th at 7:00 p.m. at Third Church (600 Forest Avenue) as trumpeter Taylor Barnett, medical illustrator Paul Gross, and philosopher and cultural critic Jamie Smith share their work and explore how our imaginations provide the bridge between the “already” and the “not yet”. Here is some more information on our featured Makers:

This RVA trio is known for their unique a cappella arrangements of everything from classical to pop and gospel music, and their mission is to encourage and provoke people to share their God-given gifts and talents with others. While their close complimentary arrangements suggest they have been singing together for years, or are family members, the trio met in 2010 while singing for a local play in Richmond. Sharing dinners as well as music together, they were sitting around the table and improvised an “Awesome” medley which they then posted to Facebook. The video went viral, as did an impromptu rendition of “Total Praise” for gospel recording artist Byron Cage. That and other videos caught the attention of artist Donnie McClurkin, who invited them to open on his recent Festival of Praise tour with Fred Hammond. They have also been afforded the opportunity to sing background for many musical greats. The word of mouth/social media attention continued with the buzz stemming from a tweet of their Christmas Medley video from pop sensation Ariana Grande, which received over 2M views on Facebook and was eventually aired on Good Morning America’s Pop News segment. Following the airing, Resound was contacted to appear LIVE on the show to share more of their beautifully arranged a cappella harmonies. Clarke, Hargrove and Fox are now working tirelessly to release their debut single and EP and are focusing on establishing a career path as the group RESOUND, and believe their gifts and all of the opportunities they have been given thus far can only be accredited to God. Without Him they know they would not be able to do what they do. They are motivated by Isaiah 42:12 which states “Make God’s glory RESOUND; echo His praises from coast to coast.”

Andrew Moore
Originally from the Appalachian foothills of northern Georgia, Andrew Moore has lived in the Richmond area since grade school.

Moore’s career started at the firm of Glavé Newman Anderson (now Glavé & Holmes Architecture) under the tutelage of Pete Anderson and Jim Glavé. After working at GNA for a year, moved to a variety of Richmond architecture and design firms, finally returning to Glave & Holmes in 2004. Since returning to G&HA, Moore has advanced to the role of Principal and Studio Director, heading the Urban Architecture Studio, a studio that is devoted to continuing Jim Glavé’s legacy of place-making and enhancing the vitality of the city through design. Moore is licensed to practice architecture in Virginia, Delaware and California and is an Accredited Professional in the US Green Building Council’s LEED system. In addition to his work at G&HA, Moore is a founding member of the Board of Directors of Storefront for Community Design, a non-profit organization that serves the City of Richmond by connecting the design community with people in need. Moore is also President of Partnership for Smarter Growth, a non-profit organization that promotes regional cooperation and integrated land-use and transportation planning in the Richmond Region. Moore is active in professional associations, such as the American Institute of Architecture, the Urban Land Institute, the Virginia Downtown Development Association, and The Congress of the New Urbanism, as well as lecturing at VCU, University of Richmond and other local institutions on issues of urban design and architecture.
