Yuki Ito has a great interest in delivering the joy of music to the audience as conductor. He founded the In Tune Orchestra (ITO) in 2013, and made his first appearance as conductor with the ITO at 'Yuki Ito & Friends' concert in London in March that year. Since then he has taken the orchestra to major venues in London including St Martin in the Fields and St James's Piccadilly, play-directing cello concertos himself, conducting symphonies and collaborating with such distinguished artists as Julian Lloyd Webber and Natalia Lomeiko as solist. In July 2013 he was invited as guest conductor to lead the Toho Gakuen-Tokyo Garden Orchestra, that consists of the best students of Tokyo's major conservatoires, and made his Tokyo Opera City début with them. In September 2015 he conducted Kaposoka Symphony Orchestra in Angola, and will lead them in their Japan tour in May 2016 in collaboration with Suzuki Method and El Sistema Japan.

 

2013年に結成した『In Tune Orchestra』(略・ITO)とロンドンで行われた『伊藤悠貴と仲間達』コンサートでのデビューを皮切りに、セント・マーティン・イン・ザ・フィールズ教会や聖ジェイムズ・ピカデリー教会などロンドンの主要な演奏会場にて、弾き振りに加え交響曲、また世界的チェロ奏者ジュリアン・ロイド・ウェバーや、ヴァイオリン奏者ナタリア・ロメイコら著名な演奏家をソリストとして招くなど、精力的に活動。2013年6月に首都圏の主要音楽大学生により形成される『桐朋学園・東京庭オーケストラ』のゲスト指揮者として定期演奏会に出演、7月には同オーケストラとオペラシティ・タケミツメモリアルにデビュー。

2016年日本アンゴラ外交関係樹立40周年・カポソカ交響楽団日本ツアーを指揮し、日本のアフリカ外交に大きく貢献した。
