Biography
George Natsis is a Romanian musician of Greek descent, who is the pianist of the Radio Romania Big Band and assistant-conductor to Ionel Tudor. He wrote arrangements for musical saw virtuoso Benedict Popescu as well as for religious music. In light music, he composed children’s songs. In 2010, he was the president of the jury in the Romanian Eurovision Song Contest heats.

George Natsis conducted the orchestra for Dida Dragan, who represented Romania in the 1993 preselection held for seven Eastern European countries that wanted to enter the Eurovision Song Contest final in Millstreet. Dragan sang ‘Nu pleca’, which finished last and thus did not qualify. Each of the seven competing acts presented a second song; for Dida Dragan, Natsis played the piano in this second performance.

In due course, a more extensive biography of George Natsis will be published on this website
