The King's Lynn Festival Chorus will begin their 41st season with new faces and a new venue.
Ben Horden joins the chorus as their new accompanist, replacing Chris Brown who went on to become head of music at a school in Oxfordshire.
Mr Horden has held a number of positions in churches and cathedrals around the country, working in both ensemble and solo fields.
A chorus spokesman said: 'Ben was the outstanding candidate at his auditions and we are very much looking forward to him working with Tom, our music director, and us.'
The group were recently visited by Stile Antico, one of the world's finest vocal ensembles, who will be conducting a workshop with the Festival Chorus.
