The North Sea Radio Orchestra was founded in Summer 2002 by Craig and Sharron Fortnam.

...
The Orchestra was originally formed to perform Craig Fortnam's classical works.He was trained at Dartington College of Arts, graduating in 1990, and never ceased to compose despite the attraction of pop.Since leaving Dartington, he has had pieces performed by esteemed groups such as the Kreutzer Quarter and the Britten Sinfonia.
The North Sea Radio Orchestra has reinforced links between writers, singers and musicians on a prolific London scene drawing in members from surrounding projects and creating the opportunity, for some, to indulge in something classical in nature whether composing, performing or both.The Orchestra is committed to exposing the strength of the new British composers involved, to continue to premiere new works and to keep on growing.In the beginning, there were just eight musicians, now there are twenty members forming the Orchestra and the expanding North Sea Chorus.The North Sea Radio Orchestra premieres works by Craig Fortnam, William D Drake and James Larcombe.

In October 2002, composer and guitarist Craig Fortnam found himself walking through the City of London with a sackful of tunes slung over his shoulder, Dick Whittington-style. Now, as all music comes from the air, the sack was all that stopped Craig's tunes from escaping and following the Thames out to sea. He got his wife, Sharron, to help. As she folded and kneaded these melodies, she began to sing, so her beautiful voice found it's way into the expanding mixture.

When the music was almost ready, Craig called together twenty musicians and singers (North Sea Chorus) from all over the Metropolis and they all ducked into St Martin's-within-Ludgate where the North Sea Radio Orchestra was born.

Craig Fortnam's compositions stake out a unique terrain, somewhere between Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending and the baroque meditations of Sufjan Stevens, and his wife Sharron populates it with a voice of dazzling, pre-industrial clarity.' The Sunday Telegraph*****
