Fowler was contracted to rebuild and re-voice the organ in September of 1990. The work included a new console, a new solid-state memory with combination action, some new wind chests, several new ranks, a Cymbelstern, and a new Carillon. The re-dedication program on May 5, 1996, included organists Linda Mack, Paul Flyger, Warren Becker, and Betty Woodland.
