Statement concerning the position of The Huddersfield Choral Society’s Chorus Master
The Huddersfield Choral Society has today suspended its Chorus Master, Joseph Cullen following his appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday during which he was charged with two counts of lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour.
