Singer, songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter will present an exclusive virtual concert for the campus community, hosted by the Student Association Programming Board, at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, as a fundraiser for the Student Emergency Fund and SHOP pantry.

The SAPB fall concert is a free virtual event open to SUNY Oswego students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents, with online registration required. Viewers can donate at the time of registration by following the instructions in their confirmation email, or during the show via an interactive button that will appear on screen. The first 500 pre-registrants will be entered into a chance to participate in a virtual VIP meet and greet with Carpenter post show.

Carpenter has enchanted an audience of millions as a singer, songwriter, actress, designer and style icon. On-screen, she has generated mega-fandom throughout television and film, ranging from her central role on the smash "Girl Meets World" to critically acclaimed independent fare such as "The Hate U Give." In her music, Carpenter has delivered one anthem after another on stage and in the studio, earning multiple gold certifications and performing to sold-out crowds far and wide.

Her film and television credits span a wide array of diverse projects from "Orange is the New Black" to Netflix's "Tall Girl." Carpenter earned her first leading role in the 2019 movie "The Short History of the Long Road," which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival with rave reviews and earned her the Jury Award for “Best Performance” at the 2019 SCAD Savannah Film Festival. Of her performance, Variety said, “a soulful Sabrina Carpenter... (Carpenter’s) restrained performance and air of wisdom, permeating the screen with an astutely soulful quality that’s tough to turn away from,” and the San Francisco Chronicle added, “Sabrina Carpenter shines in ‘The Short History of the Long Road.”

Carpenter leads the cast and executive produced Netflix’s "Work It,"  which debuted at #1 on the platform upon its release in August and has remained in the Top 10 as it garnered fans across the globe. She is also the lead in Justin Baldoni’s highly anticipated Warner Bros feature "Clouds" coming in October. In March, she made her Broadway debut starring in "Mean Girls." 

Meanwhile, her growing musical catalog encompasses a pair of gold singles,  “Thumbs” and “Why,” and the albums "Singular: Act I" and "Singular: Act II." Of her music, Time magazine wrote “she’s one to watch as she grows into her musical identity,” and V magazine added “With two successful pop albums and a hard-hitting social commentary under her belt, Carpenter’s career has matured faster than many of her Disney-bred predecessors.”

Carpenter also embraced a foothold at the forefront of fashion with blog-worthy looks and by designing her own tour merch. Much to the adoration of her 20 million Instagram followers, Sabrina Carpenter emerges as the ultimate 21st century leading lady on screen, in your social feed and on your stereo.

The college's Student Emergency Fund assists students with unanticipated expenses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Students Helping Oz Peers (SHOP) pantry is open to provide food and toiletry items to campus members in need.
