03 : Art

As a singer and actress, I have played numerous musicals, operas, and plays since I was 10 years old.

As a violinist, I joined my school orchestra in a tour to different cities in Europe in 2001. In the same year, I participated in a national violin contest. I have played in the Universidad de La Serena symphonic orchestra, the university orchestra in Santiago and several ensembles.
With the musical group “Magreb”, we released the album "Música Andalusí" sponsored by the Embassy of Morocco in Chile in 2011.

Between 2009 and 2011 I studied lyric singing at the Institute of Music, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. The last two years were done in parallel with my bachelor's in astronomy. From 2009 to 2015 I worked as a singer and violinist at different corporate and private events such as weddings, graduations, television, etc. The last years of my undergrad tuition fees were paid by this work.

Since 2015 and while on my PhD, I joined a band with ETH students and performed at several events. In 2019 I founded my own amateur musical theater company "ZIMT" (Zurich International Musical Theater, also cinnamon in German).

Following my passion for arts, science and communication, in 2021 I created the YouTube channel "Cosmosofia".

I also keep a blog since 2008! if you want to have a look of my poetry and thoughts, please check nefinia.wordpress.com.
