Description
These recordings came from a vocal/piano coaching lesson Katharine Hepburn did sometime in 1969 (?), possibly to prep for her first Broadway musical "Coco". Some of the songs originally came from the musicals "Fiddler on the roof" and "Mame". Hepburn's vocals were not miked, so vocals are at low volume.
