Strictly speaking, Christoph Streuli owes the fact that he is a violinist today to a classmate. He was enrolled in violin lessons, and because the teacher had another opening, the eight-year-old Christoph Streuli simply went along with his friend. After passing his university entrance qualification, he studied first at the Winterthur Musikhochschule with Rudolf Bamert, then Konzertmeister of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, and in the master course of Aida Stucki. He continued his studies at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam with Herman Krebbers. 

Christoph Streuli further honed his skills in masterclasses given by Franco Gulli, Walter Levin and the Melos Quartet. Before joining the Berliner Philharmoniker, he was deputy leader of the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra of Heilbronn and a member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Streuli, whose interests include film and literature, and who enjoys skiing, was a longtime member of the Scharoun Ensemble, and plays in various chamber music formations, including the Berlin Baroque Soloists and (with David Riniker) in the Feininger Trio.
