L’Orchestre symphonique national du Liban or The Lebanese National Symphony Orchestra was founded in late 1999 in Beirut under the guidance of Dr. Walid Gholmieh and the management of Le Conservatoire libanais national supérieur de musique or The Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music. In a few years, the Orchestra has proven itself both locally and regionally and gained great success. It gives 25 to 30 concerts per season at the church of the Saint Joseph University in Beirut and in other cities, playing a varied international repertoire by world-renowned classical music composers.[1]

The Orchestra played host to well known soloists such as the Polish guitarist Vladimir Gromolak, Dutch violinist Werther Vosn, tenor Plácido Domingo, composer and soprano Hiba Al Kawas, Spanish guitarist José María Gallardo Del Rey, Lebanese violinist Zareh Tcheroyan, the Polish pianist Radivonovitch and the Japanese pianist Atsuko Seta.

The Orchestra has accompanied the Prague Chamber Choir in Rossini's "Stabat Mater."

The Orchestra has participated in the programs of the Al Bustan Winter Festival in Beit Mery and the Baalbeck International Festival.[2]
