Scates visited IPR's Studio A to play the first etude of Gilles Silvestrini. This piece is named "L'Hôtel des roches noires. Trouville" after a painting by Claude Monet.
Scates talked about her affinity for butterflies and explained why, when she was in elementary school, she had to become extremely proficient at the oboe in just a couple of months. Hear the entire interview and performance below.
