Biography

Known as the “Greek Gershwin”, Mimis Plessas is a prolific composer with a vast repertoire of classic hit songs, film scores, theater music, jazz, and symphonic pieces to his name and throughout his illustrious 50‐plus year career.

Plessas began composing in 1952 and has since received distinctions and illustrious accolades in Greece and internationally (Paris, Barcelona, Belgium, Edinburgh, United States, Tokyo, Carlovi Vari, Czech Republic, Altomonte, Italy).
