Pinnacle is pleased to introduce Dr. Ilona Kubiaczyk-Adler as Pinnacle’s new Associate Director of Ministries in Music and Arts/Organist.

A native of Poland, Ilona has been in the Valley for the past ten years. In addition to being a concertizing organist, Ilona was the Director of Music Ministries at the Episcopal Church of the Nativity for nine years and most recently the Associate Director of Music at All-Saints Episcopal. She holds a Doctor of Musical Arts from Arizona State University where she was a summa cum laude graduate and student of Dr. Kimberly Marshall.

Ilona assumes her duties at Pinnacle beginning Sunday, January 27. In addition to organ/keyboard playing, she will direct our Cholla Chimers, Canyon Ringers, and Youth Handbell Ensemble. She will also assist with our adult handbell ensemble, Pinnacle Pealers. Ilona brings energy, passion, and a vast knowledge of church music!

As we welcome Ilona, I also give thanks to Larry Eisel and his time with us. Not only is Larry an extraordinary musician, but a kind, gracious man. Larry brought so much joy to our worship and we look forward to his involvement in our music making from time-to-time.
