Back by popular demand, is hosting an additional outdoor “Ravinia-style” concert.
The second in the Cabernet Cabaret Concert Series, Sirens of Song is set for Friday, Sept. 9, at Arranmore Farm, 34 Rance Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the performance begins at 8. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, small tables, food and beverages to suit their taste.
“We weren’t planning to offer a second concert this season,” said Shannon Greene-Robb, founder and chairwoman of Arranmore Center for the Arts. “We received so much positive feedback that we decided we had to do it again; we had to make this happen. People loved the music, the setting and the overall experience."

Sirens of Song features some of the hottest female artists and female fronted bands from the Chicago area. It will be a collaborative effort and will literally include every genre and variety from heavy metal to soul, said Greene-Robb.
“Three hundred people showed up in the rain for Cabernet Cabaret,” said Greene-Robb. “I would love to see it double and have 600 at this event.”
Unlike the original Cabernet Cabaret, Sirens of Song does not include wine with the ticket purchase, though attendees are welcome to bring their own. Greene-Robb feels this change makes the event more family friendly.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at , Naperville Bank and Trust, online or at the door. Greene-Robb encourages buying tickets in advance so her team can adequately prepare facilities like parking and restrooms.
