Laura Kakis Serper
Founder and Conductor

Laura has vast experience in directing children's choirs, including the San Francisco Girls' Chorus and the San Francisco Boys' Chorus where she was the Artistic Director for three years. Ms. Kakis Serper received her degrees in Music Education and Voice Performance from the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music as well as Westminster Choir College, and the Aspen Music Institute. She is currently the Director of Choral Music at The Crowden School. Her Greek heritage inspired the name of the Kairos Youth Choir and its choruses. One of her Greek folksong choral arrangements has been performed at Carnegie Hall. When she is not chasing her wonderfully active six year old, Emile, she loves dance, hiking, English horseback riding, tennis and finding tasty vegetarian foods.

Emile Arkadi Serper
Kairos Staff Jester

Emile will be the first to tell you he was born on December 17th in the palindrome year of 2002 and is currently 5 years old. He has been an active listener of Kairos Choir from conception and made his first appearance as assistant conductor while hanging in the baby Bjorn at age five months. When not joyfully engaged and entertained by the fabulous Kairos kids, Emile will love to answer your math equations and will be busy reading things he shouldn't be. Emile loves people, animals, music, computers, soccer, tennis, and macaroni & cheese!

Arkadi Serper
Kairos Pianist and Composer

Arkadi received his music education in Russia at the Gnesin State Musical College and Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. He has enjoyed a distinguished career as a pianist, composer and educator. Mr. Serper is Director of Piano and Composition and Music Theory at The Crowden School, and teaches at the San Francisco Conservatory in the Preparatory Department. He has written and published choral music for Kairos Youth Choir and compositions in original musical theatre. As an acclaimed composer, his symphonic and chamber compositions have been produced by several major orchestras. As a pianist, he continues to perform concerts, both as a soloist and chamber musician. When he is not chasing his wonderfully active six year old, Emile, he loves playing chess, hiking, soccer, tennis and finding chocolate-covered strawberries.
