This month on Naperville Notables, host Liz Spencer visits with Naperville native Shannon Greene Robb at Arranmore Farm and Polo fields.
Music is everything to Shannon Greene Robb. An accomplished pianist, Shannon showed her talent and dedication at an early age so much so she suffered a life-altering injury that would set in motion a series of events that would change her life forever.
Switching her focus slightly, Greene Robb found solace in music education and a new passion of choral direction. It was during her graduate studies that Greene Robb recognized the power of collaboration between the many art forms of music, dance, theatre, and visual arts, thus setting the stage for ArranmoreArts.
Her love for children helped Greene Robb create ArranmoreArts, where she shares her love of music and strives to bring a unique experience to both art and education through innovate programming.
At Arranmore Farm and Polo Club, Greene Robb can encourage people to make connections and experience community through live music performances. “I thought if I’m going to live in Naperville, I’m going to create the collaborative opportunities here that I found in Chicago,” Greene Robb said. Thus, “Cab Cab” was born: an innovative music series that takes the audience member beyond the typical concert experience.
For Greene Robb it’s about connections, family and living an inspired life.
