Barbara Lewis  is a well-known performer and vocal coach who works with mature as well as young singers. About five years ago, Barbara embarked on a coaching program with Claire  Duchesneau, an amateur singer who is significantly hearing-impaired. Their musical journey became the catalyst for filmmaker Anne Henderson’s documentary In the Key of Claire. For four years, Barbara has nourished, as well as performed with her special student, and a deep bond has evolved. The film shows Barbara in concert, revealing her wonderful vocal range and interpretations.
