The precursor ensemble of the orchestra was the Orchestre de l'ORTF de Lille, which was made defunct in 1974. In 1976, through the actions of the RĂ©gion Nord-Pas-de-Calais and conductor Jean-Claude Casadesus, the orchestra was reformed as the Orchestre philharmonique de Lille. In 1980, with government sponsorship, the orchestra took its current name, the Orchestre national de Lille. wikipedia
