He has worked with many distinguished performers, ensembles and musicians including Psappha, the London Sinfonietta, the Endymion Ensemble, Paragon Ensemble, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Tokyo City Philharmonic and Gewandhaus Radio Orchestra, among others with many broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Scotland, European and US radio stations. Marc is Composer-in-Association with Thumb ensemble [Birmingham UK], Composer-in Association with Manchester Pride [Manchester UK] and most recently, composer-in-association with Chamber Cartel [Atlanta USA]. He was also an Arts Council Specialist Music Assessor [2011-2013] and is Chair of DIVAcontemporary, an artist-led organisation committed to creativity and experimentation in the arts and practice-based research, working internationally, nationally and locally. Marc is a founding partner of SATSYMPH LLP. Marc’s visual art has been exhibited and collected across the UK and abroad. He has paintings in the collections of several public galleries in Scotland including An Tobar, An Tuireann and The Pier Art Centre, Orkney. Marc is Artist-in-Residence at the Marburae Art Gallery, Maccelsfied, Cheshire for summer 2013 Recent large music commissions include: SATSYMPH’s ‘on a theme of Hermes’; an original work which fuses contemporary classical ensemble music and contemporary poetry in an entirely new and innovative way having a truly unique method of delivery via smartphone apps, 'sturzstrom', a large choral work commissioned by Coastal Voices as part of an umbrella project that explored the Jurassic Coast with newly commissioned compositions linking music and earth sciences through the voice. Performances included the premiere, 300 feet underground in Beer Quarry Caves, Devon; Lighthouse Poole and the opening ceremony of the Olympic sailing events in Weymouth and Portland, Dorset in July 2012. Other commissions include a string quartet for the Corsham Festival, new works for Thumb Ensemble and Manchester Pride, a brass quintet for Alba Brass and many other works to be premiered in 2013 and beyond. Marc has received enthusiastic reviews for his work in ‘The Times’, The Independent’, The Scotsman and the Herald with glowing endorsements for his work from some of today’s most eminent composers: “Marc Yeats’ musical voice is quite unlike anything else; the music is challenging to both performers and audiences, and very communicative. He produces extraordinary compositions that not only look and sound good, but demonstrate a very high level of academic learning, while being breathtakingly original.” Sir Peter Maxwell Davies
