Mitchell Lewis tapped to lead the Men’s Chorus
Mitchell Lewis (FSU BMued, Winthrop MM Choral Conducting) has been appointed as interim Director of the 100-voiced Men’s Chorus: Mallard Creek Chorale, the fifth director in it’s 25-year history. Prof. Lewis has a wealth of experience from directing the Florida State University Gospel Choir, to teaching choral music at Randolph Middle School (CMS), to being a Minister of Music at Nation’s Ford Community Church.
He says, “My strategy is to guide. Guidance is executed best through leadership. Leadership is a key component to gaining the trust and respect of students. This is first achieved by demonstrating respect and having a genuine concern for students’ interests. Secondly, exemplifying a liberal mindset and keeping biases to a minimum insures that students remain open to my views and philosophies on any given subject matter,” and, “I will exemplify, to the best of my ability, a high standard of excellence and professionalism to uphold the integrity and reputation of UNCC.”
