At a cost of $1.25 million in 1992, its creation by the English organ builder N.P.

Mander Organ debuted to an audience of 1,800 with a recital by organist David Higgs on April 27, 1993.

Hailed by The New York Times as “splendid,” and “one of New York’s finest organists,” Renée Anne Louprette has established an international career as organ recitalist, accompanist, conductor, and teacher. She is University Organist and Coordinator of the Organ Department at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, and a former member of the organ faculty of the Manhattan School of Music, The Hartt School of the University of Hartford, and the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University.

Renée Anne Louprette was appointed Associate Director of Music and Organist of the Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City in 2015. She has previously served as Director of Music at the Church of Notre Dame, Organist and Associate Director of Music and the Arts at Trinity Wall Street, and Associate Director of Music at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.
