Pirates Pitcher with Great Pipes to Sing with Orchestra
Left-hander Steven Brault will take the stage with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra this weekend.
Pirates pitcher Steven Brault loves to sing.
“I sing a lot,” says Brault. “I sing a lot when I’m shagging BP and stuff especially,” he told KDKA-TV.
This weekend at Heinz Hall, Brault will perform as a special guest vocalist in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s PNC Pops concert “Blockbuster Broadway!” The show will include music from “Les Misérables,” “Gypsy,” “Chicago,” “42nd Street” and “Hamilton.”

The left-handed pitcher joined the Pirates in 2016. He is a native of El Cajon, California, and attended Regis University in Denver, where he majored in music performance with an emphasis on vocal performance. A lover of music since childhood, he’s the lead singer of a band called the “Street Gypsies.”
Once in a while, he combines his passions, as he did on June 19, 2018, when he sang the national anthem at PNC Park.
Brault recently finished recording “A Pitch to Broadway,” which will be released on April 3. In the album, he performs 12 popular Broadway songs including “I Believe” from “Book of Mormon,” “You’ll Be Back” from “Hamilton” and “Music Of The Night” from “Phantom of The Opera.”
Brault will perform three shows with the PSO beginning Friday. Click here for times and ticket information.
