Given by the Glasgow Flute Ensemble, the concert is in aid of Alzheimer in memory of Martha Houston a lifelong supporter of the talented amateur musicians’ group. Her husband, Sam Houston , 85, was the Ensemble’s secretary for many of the 50 plus years he has been a member. Said current Secretary, Bobby Murray: ‘Sam is an honorary member. Although he retired from playing last year, he still attends rehearsals regularly. Sadly Martha died after a long illness due to Alzheimer’s. Her son Sam junior, although residing in Hong Kong, is still a registered member and avid supporter of our group as indeed is his sister Sadie. The family have been long term members and held various committee positions throughout the years.’
The Glasgow Amateur Flute Ensemble is a group of 25 flautists and percussionists. They are non-political, non-sectarian and ranging from 11 to 80 years old. See and hear the Ensemble on You Tube or website: www.safba.org.uk/bands/glasgow.html
