Westfield Patch: Yankee Stadium organist serves as music director at Presbyterian Church
Here’s an item from a local news site that caught my eye last week. Ed Alstrom, an organist at Yankee Stadium, talks about his job there as well as his new position at a church in Westfield with Westfield Patch writer Elizabeth Alterman:
“I went in on an afternoon in March,” Alstrom explained. “There was about three feet of snow on the ground; it’s about 20 degrees out and I’m sitting in the organ booth at Yankee Stadium with my future boss and Eddie Layton himself. We have parkas on; it’s freezing. I did the audition.”
Within the week, Alstrom was offered the job of weekend organist.
