Runette Botha

The Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner for Music 2013 soprano Runette Botha is a sought after concert singer and recitalist with an extensive repertoire in oratorio and other sacred music, ranging from Bach through Mozart to Rutter.

"I'm very grateful to Standard Bank for this award. I believe that the exposure is invaluable.  I hope that through this award I will get the opportunity to do more work at home, and then in effect invest my talent in South Africa again," said Botha, who currently lives and works primarily in Germany.
