Mike Gilbert

I'm a Texan, born in the Houston area and raised in LaMarque.  I became an IBC in 1976 and have always lived in Galveston's beautiful East End Historical District.  I received a Bachelor of Music degree from Texas A&I University, Kingsville and two masters degrees, one in music ( University of Houston ) and the other in school administration ( U of H - Clear Lake ).  My entire 31 years of teaching choral music was in Galveston, twenty-three as director at Ball High School.  I have served as church music director at Central Christian, First Baptist and most recently serving nine years as Director of Music at Moody Methodist Church.  I am currently the choral director for the Galveston College Community Chorale.  I am also in my 26th year being a member of the Houston Symphony Chorus.

I began to appreciate and love the art of photography while being stationed in West Berlin, Germany from 1971-73.

I have served on the following Board of Directors:

East End Historical District Association - President
Galveston Historical Foundation

I am currently serving  on these Board of Directors:

Galveston Symphony Orchestra
Houston / Galveston, Stavanger Sister City Society (Stavanger is our sister city in Norway)

I love Galveston, its history, its Victorian architecture, the East End, the diversity of its people, and its courage and willingness to face adversity.

Hobbies include - building wooden ship models, stain glass, and golf (lots of golf). I'm also the very proud grandfather of Zach & Max.
