Offspring of the Societe des Grands Concerts de Lyon, founded in 1905, the Orchestre National de Lyon (ONL) became a permanent orchestra with 102 musicians in 1969, with Louis Fremaux as its first musical director (1969–1971). From then on the orchestra was run and supported financially by the city of Lyon, which in 1975 provided it with a concert hall, the Lyon Auditorium.
Since the Opera de Lyon Orchestra was founded in 1983, the ONL has devoted itself to symphonic repertoire. Taking over from Louis Fremaux in 1971, Serge Baudo was in-charge of the orchestra until 1986 and made it a musical force to be reckoned with far beyond its home region. Under the leadership of Emmanuel Krivine (1987–2000) and David Robertson (2000–2004), the ONL continued to increase in artistic stature and to receive international critical acclaim. Jun Markl took over from him in September 2005 as musical director of the ONL. Leonard Slatkin has been musical director since September 2011.
