Called “Fa La La La La, La La La La, Soul” it features the 60 member choir of students from all parts of the campus who perform a foot-tapping, finger snapping program under the direction of Pete Malinverni.
Musical selections include Spirituals, Gospel, R & B, Funk, and Soul music and other traditional music inspired by the African-American experience along with selections by Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, George Clinton and Stevie Wonder. Music arrangements are by Pete Malinverni. The performers come together to engage in that most human expression of joy, singing.

He has 10 albums as a leader and has also been music director of the Devoe Street Gospel Choir in Brooklyn for 15 years and serves as pianist/conductor of the Westchester Reform Temple.
