Meet The New White Sox Organist

CHICAGO (WBBM) — A new woman is behind the organ console at U.S. Cellular Field.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Lisa Fielding reports, organist Nancy Faust said goodbye after 40 years last season. She started back at old Comiskey Park in 1969.

Now taking her place is Lori Moreland, 52.

“I am looking forward to meeting the fans; to being part of that experience – the excitement of a season,” Moreland said.

Moreland studied classical organ at the American Conservatory, and plays at her church.

But she says she’s ready to take on some new material, and of course, some traditional favorites, including “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” and “Take Me out to the Ballgame.”

“Those are the ones that I made sure that I really had down pat,” Moreland said. “I could probably do those forward, backward, in my sleep.”

Moreland beat out dozens of candidates. She will make her debut on the Hammond organ at the home opener at U.S. Cellular Field on April 7.

    Don’t think Nancy should have been replaced – just play recorded music. It won’t be the same.

    • Paul

      as a musician, all I can say is, “really?”

  • Linda

    I don’t think it matters, Christy. Most of us are there to watch the game. Most fans won’t care who plays the organ. Good luck Lori. GO SOX!.

  • Lynn

    Good luck Lori. I love the organ music at the game. Can’t wait to hear you.

  • Spring Fever

    Can’t wait to hear her renditon of Let’s Go, Let’s Go White Sox!
    Can’t wait to see Adam Dunn’s first homer either.

    Congratulations White Sox for hiring a MUSICIAN and not a DEE-JAY!

  • Bob Lazzari

    The organ has been and should stay as part of the game.

  • John

    I would of thought the Whit Sox would of went with a younger organist. Why have a lady start this job in her 50’s when in all reality she might not like it or might not be around in 10 years for whatever reason? I wish her all the luck in the world and I’m glad they aren’t going to play music. The organ is perfect for baseball and the White Sox. Good luck Lori.
