In 2014, Lucie founded the Orchestre de Chambre de Lille (OCL) with one ambition: to spread music for all, in places where people do not expect it. Transmission and collective practices are at the heart of the orchestra’s educational projects, which, alongside the concerts, offers awareness-raising workshops.
