Sue Nelson

Sue Nelson, in her 19th year as the Twins organist, welcomes music and baseball fans of all ages to drop by her perch in the 2 Gingers Pub, Section 213 bar—high enough to see every play on the field—and say hello. She plays a Yamaha organ with two 44-note keyboards and 13 pedals, a time-tested instrument that moved with her from the Metrodome to Target Field. She wrote this essay in 2010 for the Minnesota Orchestra’s Showcase magazine.
