North Sea Radio Orchestra (generally abbreviated to NSRO) is a British contemporary music ensemble and cross-disciplinary chamber orchestra (plus
chorus). Set up mainly as a vehicle for the compositions of its musical director, Craig Fortnam, it has also performed works by William D. Drake and
The ensemble is notable for its post-modern fusion of Romantic music and later twentieth century forms, and for its bridging of the worlds of
contemporary classical music, British folk music, London art-rock and poetry (setting music to poems by W.B. Yeats, Thomas Hardy, Alfred Lord
Tennyson and Daniel Dundas Maitland).
