SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP — A scheduled concert by a children’s choir in Bradford County is cancelled.

The Singing Boys of Pennsylvania no longer plan to perform a lenten program at East Smithfield Federated Church near Athens.

The cancellation comes after the choir’s founder and long-time leader was arrested on sex assault charges.

Authorities in Monroe County accuse Bernard Schade of sexually abusing a 15- year-old choir member in 1996.
