Was awarded twice the scholarship of Teatro Municipal of Santiago. After graduating SUMA CUM LAUDE, she continues her studies at the HfM Freiburg where she gets her Master Degrees in Lied/Oratorio and Opera under the guidance of Towako SatoSchöllhorn and Alexander Schulin graduating from both with the highest distinction. Since August 2012 she was a part of Placido Domingo´s Opera Studio at the Palau de les Arts in Valencia, Spain and right after she was discovered by Raina Kabaivanska and since then she studies under her guidance in Modena, Italy. The Soprano has a vast Symphonic Repertoire and she is very active in Barrock and Chamber music. We have seen her in works such as: Mozart´s C-moll Messe, krönungsmesse and Requiem , Bach´s Magnificat, Mattheus Passion, Pergolesi´s and Scarlatti´s Stabat Matter, Mendelssohn´s Elias, Händel´s Messiah and Dixit Dominus. In the Chamber Music field she does Recitals in Germany, Italy, France, Chile and Spain were she does her Debut at the Schubertiada Vilabertrán in 2012 recorded for Cataluña Music Radio.

Sorozábal under the direction from José Carlos Plaza and M. Gómez-Martínez conducting. An important impulse in her growing as a singer comes from the Master classes she has attend with René Jacobs, Plácido Domingo, Raina Kabaivanska, Davide Livermore, Helmut Deutsch, Margreet Honig, Roger Vignoles, Peter Kooij, Mirella Freni, Ernesto Palacios, Cristina Gallardo-Domas, Veronica Villaroel, Maureen Marambio, Hans-MIcahel Beuerle, Mya Besselink ecc.
