Panagiotis Karousos ist ein in den Vereinigten Staaten, Kanada und Griechenland sehr renommierter Komponist. Seine Kompositionen sind von der Philosophie und dem Geist der griechischen Klassik inspiriert. Die Synphonien Nr. 1 "Liberty" und Nr. 2 "Olympic" wurden in Kanada und New York von mehreren Orchestern mit großem Erfolg aufgeführt. Karousos komponierte ein Klavierkonzert für den Frieden, das unter der Schirmherrschaft der UNESCO in Montreal stattfand, und ein Violinkonzert (Uraufführung: New York). In Hague, Holland, präsentierte er seinen "Olympic Flame" Chor. Karousos Oper "Alexander the Great" wurde in Montreal, Chicago, North Carolina und Toronto, seine Oper "Prometheus" in Los Angeles, New York und Washington gespielt. 2013 fanden mehrfach große Aufführungen des "Prometheus" in den antiken Theatern von Epidauros, Messina und in der Alten Agora statt. 2014 wurde "Prometheus" zweimal in New York, vor den Vereinten Nationen und unter der Schirmherrschaft der UNESCO, gespielt, während seine Symphonie Nr. 4 "Earth" im gleichen Jahr in Athen uraufgeführt wurde. Das staatliche griechische Radio widmete Karousos bereits zwei Porträt-Sendungen, in denen große griechische Solisten seine Werke interpretieren.
