Kerry will be accompanied by pianist and organist, Stewart Smith, with whom she has worked extensively in recent years.
Dr Tom Maguire, Head of School of Arts & Humanities, said: “Music@One brings talented musicians across a range of genres to perform on our Magee campus.
“Not only do our students get the chance to witness the preparation that goes into a world-class performance, it gives them the platform to go and achieve it for themselves.
Kerry Stamp, a recent graduate from Ulster University is one such student who continues to astound audiences with her vocal ability and is a true testament to the performing talent the University brings to the city.”
Music@One is a series of free live performances taking place each week at lunchtime that aims to showcase local musicians as well as to bring international artists and visitors to the region.
The North West is a hub for musical talent with a vibrant creative community which is reflected in the impressive range of musicians in the programme.
The event will take place on Tuesday, October 15th.
