GOODLAND — Returning to entertain northwest Kansans, Kubecca is coming to the newly remodeled Goodland High School Auditorium, 12th and Cherry, at 3 p.m. Central time Oct. 15.

Originally from Poland, Kuba Kawnik began his musical career at age 4. Although best known for his performance on vibraphone, he also has mastered some unusual and difficult instruments, including the theremin, a rare and complex contemporary invention accessible to but a few virtuosos worldwide.
Classically trained at the Academy of Music in Łódź, Poland, Kuba later studied at the acclaimed Jazz Institute of Katowice. He has played with the Warsaw Philharmonic and Łódź Philharmonic, as well as for specials on Polish television.
A frequent headliner on cruise lines such as Princess, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Norwegian, Celebrity, Cunard, Oceania, Silversea and Crystal, he has performed for extensive international crowds. Repeatedly told by audiences how unique his show is and how mesmerized they were, he still never ceases to bring something new to the stage.
On stage, Rebecca Lowe is best known for her roles in the musicals Evita and Jekyll & Hyde. Booked right out of college, and as the youngest actress to perform the role of Eva Peron, she received standing ovations and critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe. Since 2002, Lowe has performed as a headliner for leading cruise lines throughout the world. More recently joining forces with her husband, Kuba, the two also have made a huge splash on land, performing to rave reviews on tour throughout the United States. Known for her easy-to-get-to-know personality and strong, clear voice, her performances are engaging and entertaining, incorporating her musical theatre background as well as popular and country music.
These two performers, now married, are enjoying success as they team up onstage in venues ranging from performing arts theaters in the United States to jazz clubs in Poland to the world’s top cruise liners.
Their program consists of widely varied Broadway, pops, country and classical tunes such as Tico Tico, Flight of the Bumble Bee, Don’t Rain On My Parade, Good Hearted Woman, Only You, I Dreamed a Dream and Make You Feel My Love.
The program is sponsored by Western Plains Arts Association, as supported by northwest Kansas area businesses and individuals, including generous support from the Dane Hansen Foundation, Logan. For more information visit www.kubecca.com
