Veronika Botos is the solo violist of the Hungarian Opera House Orchestra. She graduated from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in 1992, where she was a student of head of department László Bársony, and attended the chamber music courses of János Devich, Károly Botvay, and András Mihály. In the same year she won the Pál Lukács Memorial Competition.

In addition to the viola she plays the viola d’amore as well, which is the instrument whose the sweet-and-somber tunes open Melinda's aria in Bánk bán. An unforgettable experience of hers is when she played the instrument in New York, where Placido Domingo congratulated her. At her birthday concert she will likely talk about this moment as well.
