The Musical Feast Choral Society of Greater Lewisville, Inc., was founded in July, 1997 by Peter Schindler, and received non-profit status in October, 2000. As a civic chorus dedicated to the performance of sacred and secular choral music of the finest quality, we are proud to be sponsored by the City of Lewisville.
We have recently changed our name to the Lewisville Civic Chorale (LCC) to better reflect our role in the Arts Community of Greater Lewisville.
The chorus has performed the works of great masters such as Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Brahms, Schubert, Britten, Vaughan Williams, Gilbert and Sullivan, as well as selections from the school of English madrigals, traditional and modern spirituals, comedic opera choruses and other contemporary literature.
With more than 30 years of conducting experience, Lewis Worthington has a passion for people of all ages and the music they make together. His undergraduate work in music education is from East Texas State and Texas Wesleyan Universities. He holds the Master of Sacred Music degree in conducting and liturgy from Emory University. And he completed the coursework and qualifying exams for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in conducting and musicology from Louisiana State University. He has taught in the public schools in Texas and Virginia and held faculty positions at St. Lawrence University (New York), Hampden-Sydney College (Virginia), Georgetown University (District of Columbia), and North Central Texas College (Texas). He has served United Methodist congregations in Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Virginia, and Kentucky. He has conducted repertoire spanning the Middle Ages to the Twenty-first Century and his research interests include the music of France; the development of sacred arts for children; and, liturgical practice. Lewis is the National Secretary for the Fellowship of United Methodists in Music and the Worship Arts and is a brother in the Order of St. Luke, an ecumenical religious order dedicated to sacramental and liturgical scholarship, education, and practice.
The Board of Directors of the Lewisville Civic Chorale is comprised of members of the choir as well as non-singers interested in promoting and supporting the mission of the chorale.
