Michael Brewer stripped of OBE

30 May 2013

Michael Brewer, former director of music at Chetham's School of Music and the National Youth Choir, has been stripped of his Order of the British Empire (OBE).

In March, Brewer was jailed for abusing a Chetham's pupil, Frances Andrade, from the age of 14, between 1978 and 82; Ms Andrade killed herself after giving evidence at his trial at Manchester Crown Court.

In a separate development, it has been announced that Brewer is to seek leave to appeal against the length of his six-year sentence. The application will be considered by the Lord Chief Justice, sitting with two other judges, on 12 June.
