"For the last decade, we have relied on Cliff to make our performances sound as fantastic as they look in a variety of venues. Whether it is a huge, multi-purpose facility like the Westchester County Center or the auditorium at a local high school, Cliff handles it all with his reliable and professional expertise. He is quick to understand our needs and goals and always finds solutions to any issues that might arise. We have been delighted to have Cliff as part of our production team through the years, and rely on him to help us consistently achieve the highest standard in every performance."

"Cliff Bruno and Technical Directions are more than simply a technical consultant to our district, they have become a vital part of our community. Cliff’s guidance, and willingness to go the extra mile to assist us with our audio/visual needs, have made him a vital part of the public face of our district presentations (and a trusted and valuable friend to me and the staff and faculty of Briarcliff School District).
Always willing to provide expertise for the largest production undertakings in the school, it’s in the small things that I value him most - he’s always willing to drop by at a moment notice to help solve a technical problem, offer suggestions, or simply see how things are going. His company offers a true partnership that helps us ensure our performance spaces provide the best possible technical environment for student and community engagement. "

"Cliff Bruno has been part of the Bendheim Performing Arts Center since it’s build in the late 1990’s. He has since taken over as our Technical Director and I rely on him for everything with regard to the theatre. Cliff knows everything there is to know about the theatre and oversees all productions that take place here. No one is more knowledgeable, easy to work with and patient. Cliff responds at all hours of the day and night to my emails and calls and always has the answer. His staff is a pleasure to work with and always puts me at ease. I could not do what I do without Cliff and Technical Directions."
Director, Cultural & Performing Arts & Summer Arts Center, JCC of Mid-Westchester, NY
"I have worked with Cliff for 15 years and not once has he or his team ever let me down. He has progressed with me as my dance school grew from 80 students primarily studying tap to approximately 500 students studying all forms of dance from ballet, lyrical, modern to hip hop and breakdancing. Our recital venues progressed from local middle and high school auditoriums to our current location at the Palace Theatre in Stamford CT, a professional theatre with a 1500 seating capacity. Cliff and his team manages all our lighting and sound requirements with special effects through the nine days of rehearsals and four shows.
In addition to working in my recitals, Cliff’s team installed and maintain the sound systems in all my studio spaces.
Perhaps even more amazing than his technical expertise is his and his team’s ability to work seamlessly with all my faculty, who are very specific with their recital lighting and sound cues, as well as in any interaction with all the students and their parents.
Cliff is now part of the NCDA family, and an integral part of the success of my academy!"
