Sophia Reuter, born in Dresden, comes from a family with a long musical tradition. Her father Rolf Reuter is a conductor and grandfather Fritz Reuter was a composer. At the age of five she began taking violin lessons from Klaus Hertel at the Leipzig Mendelssohn Musikhochschule, and later studied with Peter Tietze in Berlin.

From 1989 to 1993 she studied with Alberto Lysy and Yehudi Menuhin at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad. Since then she has performed in many of the major music centres in the world. Playing both the violin and viola, she has participated in various chamber music festivals in Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Portugal, Italy, Argentina and the Far East, often together with colleagues of the highest distinction. Since 1997 she has held a position as professor at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad, also teaching at the Salzburg Mozarteum. She has on several occasions played as a member of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
