There were actually two dedications: After the instrument was enlarged to its present 28 ranks it was rededicated on September 15, 1995, in a program featured by the William Jewell Fine Arts Program for a showing of the classic 1926 silent film "La Boheme" starring Lillian Gish, with Dennis James at the console. Lyn Larsen presided over the Robert Morton organ on December 2, 1995, at the Music Hall for its second public outing.
