Doina Rotaru) and orchestra conducting (prof. Dumitru Goia). During an exchange period in Belgium, at the Gent Conservatoire, Cornelia came in contact with the practice of external european music (West-African, Indian, Japanese, a.o.), which opened up new perspectives on performing and the ontological conditions of the artist. Since 2011 Cornelia is a student of the New Audiences and Innovative Practices Master program, following violin lessons with Vera Beths. https://www.onepoint.fm/#!/corneliazambila/            http://www.myspace.com/566324102
