A Soprano is going to sing tenor at Manhattan College.

Actor Dominic Chianese, best known for his role as the ruthless Corrado “Junior” Soprano on HBO’s “The Sopranos,” will perform Wednesday at a luncheon co-sponsored by the Bronx school’s Italian Club and Diversity Committee.

The 83-year-old Bronx-born actor — who has released two albums of standards, originals and traditional Italian songs — will show off his singing skills and perform a selection of classic Neapolitan songs at the event.

Chianese got his film start in the 1974 classic “The Godfather: Part II” and had a small role in the controversial Paul Newman film “Fort Apache, The Bronx.”

The public event will be held at noon in the Great Room of the Raymond W. Kelly ’63 Student Commons at Manhattan College.
