Orchestre symphonique et lyrique de Nancy (Nancy Symphony Orchestra) is a French symphony orchestra based in the city of Nancy in the province of Lorraine.

Established in 1884 as a municipal orchestra, it became independent in 1979 and took its current name. In 1889 the composer and director of the city's conservatory Joseph-Guy Ropartz and the director of the opera Albert Carré set up a season of symphonic concerts taking place in the Salle Poirel, built specifically for this purpose.

The orchestra consists of 66 musicians giving approximately 20 performances a year, mainly in the opera house and in the Salle Poirel, as well as other halls in Lorraine. It also accompanies all productions of the Opéra national de Lorraine.
