The Chapel of Our Lady of Belen was opened in the summer of 2022, and the organ installation began immediately after the opening. The chapel provides a warm, ringing acoustic well-suited to the organ.
The organ was dedicated in a recital by Nathan Laube on March 5, 2023, as the final performance of the Miami Winter Organ Festival.
