Multiple Commands with SqlCommand

I need to execute several commands that come in a String, in this case I need to generate Views... the precise subject that the SqlCommand does not allow it, somebody knows as I can solve this?

            //My Multiple Commands
            StringBuilder _sqlQuery = new StringBuilder();          
            _sqlQuery.Append("CREATE VIEW WS_{NAME} AS SELECT * FROM {NAME} " + Environment.NewLine);
            _sqlQuery.Append("CREATE VIEW MXT_{NAME}_INET AS SELECT * FROM {NAME} " + Environment.NewLine);

            //My Tables To Views
            List<String> _tableToViews = new List<string>();
            _tableToViews.Add("Orders");
            _tableToViews.Add("Products");
            _tableToViews.Add("Region");
            using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ClientConnectionString"].ConnectionString))
            {
                conn.Open();
                foreach (String _sView in _tableToViews)
                {
                    using (SqlCommand cmdAdapter = new SqlCommand(_sqlQuery.ToString().Replace("{NAME}",_sView) , conn))
                    {
                        cmdAdapter.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                        Console.WriteLine("Execute:");
                        Console.WriteLine(cmdAdapter.CommandText);
                        try
                        {
                            cmdAdapter.ExecuteNonQuery();
                        }
                        catch ( Exception ex)
                        {
                            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
                             
                        }                                              
                    }
                }
            }
            Console.ReadLine();

Create a stored procedure and call it with your command passing appropriate parameters if needed?

You'd just have to set your CommandType to CommandType.StoredProcedure
so you'd have
 cmdAdapter.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
And
cmdAdapter.CommandText = "YourSPName";

SqlCommand can run multiple statements, but some (like CREATE VIEW, CREATE PROCEDURE, CREATE TRIGGER... ) cannot be used, as they have to be run in dedicated batches.
creating a stored procedure trying to do that will result in the same problem, you would need to use dynamic sql in there.

so, you need to run indeed 2 SqlCommands, one for each CREATE VIEW...
but, you can do that with a List<String> the same way you parametrize the tables to be handled...
