Want to be entertained and inspired at the same time? Jonathan Cring and Janet Clazzy have developed a performance experience that can best be described as “Enterspiration.” No, that’s not a misprint. Cring and Clazzy coined the term to describe their special style of performing. “567: Go Tell it from the Mount” is a two man Broadway style show full of inspiration and entertainment.
Jonathan Cring is a renowned author and musical composer. His musical style was launched from a Southern gospel background. He also writes a daily blog at Jonathots.com. Janet Clazzy’s musical style is founded in classical music. She played oboe in the Chicago Symphony. She loves to draw and currently illustrates a weekly comic strip for Jonathan’s blog.
Cring and Clazzy have been performing together for over 21 years. They knew each other professionally for many years but only started working together when Jonathan had written a novel about Jesus’ life and his publisher wanted him to do live readings. They contacted Janet and asked her to play the Oboe while Cring played piano, sang songs, and read some of the book. Out of that idea, their first show was put together and they have been performing together ever since. Over a decade ago, they discovered an unusual instrument which can make the sounds of 250 different instruments. Recently, Cring and Clazzy were named “the biggest two piece band in America.”
“567: Go Tell it from the Mount” is based on the famous bible story The Sermon on the Mount. Found in the gospel of Matthew, spanning chapters 5,6, and 7, this famous sermon is an important cornerstone of the Christian faith. Janet says, “Jonathan and I have an abiding belief that almost everything that Jesus talked about in the Sermon on the Mount is the recipe or the cure for what ails us as a society. It’s where you find the Golden Rule. It’s where Jesus first refers to God as Father. The Lord’s Prayer first appears in the Sermon on the Mount. It’s where He identifies that we are human beings and we are supposed to try to create Heaven on Earth… not to try and create ourselves as angels. We are supposed to be human beings that do as much as possible to create Heaven on Earth by making ourselves happy and extending that generosity to you so that you can be happy too.”
What people can expect to see when they come to this entertaining musical show is humor, inspirational stories that may make you cry, and stories about common sense. Clazzy says “The Sermon on the Mount has a lot of common sense based on what we, as human beings, are willing to do- Because we are not willing to do a whole lot. Most of us will be sacrificial to a point. God understood that when he made us.” She explains that God wants us to know that He is our Father and He wants us to be happy. Happiness is just one of the many emotions that this entertaining performance will evoke.
