In celebration of the role of Christmas in our origin story as The Peppermint Patties and our fondness for how food brings us together and anchors us in family tradition, we created this ebook featuring our favorite holiday treats!
By Anna Caldwell
As The Peppermint Patties celebrate three years of making music together, we share the story of how we became Chicago’s newest vintage vocal trio and reflect on our values and hopes for the future.
Among the many lessons learned over the past three years, one of the greatest has been the empowerment of producing our own shows and the joy of sharing that work both live on-stage and with a growing digital audience.
Please enjoy an excerpt from the poem "One Today" by Richard Blanco. We thought this poem and its message matched beautifully with the hope and unity of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
The song is an anthem for all who dream of a vibrant future where everyone is free to show the many colors of who they are.
