I don’t know if the device attached to the English horn is to check intonation, to amplify, or something else completely. Anyone out there know?

From the YouTube page (since the video isn’t really all about the English horn):
El?na Garan?a performs Gounod’s “Repentir” from her new album “Meditation” on Deutsche Grammohpon.

El?na Garan?a presents a beautiful selection of spiritual music dedicated to the eternal search and longing for inner peace. El?na Garan?a is joined on this recording by her husband, the well-known Gibraltan conductor Karel Mark Chichon OBE.

I want an oboe lesson. There’s a peace I find in playing oboe and being complimented for doing something right.

I am not quite sure I understand what this person is saying. Hm. Maybe I’m just not used to peace being connected to oboe! 😉
