wno2Celebrating - Andrew Bruce and WNO’s Ian Jones
UK - Autograph Sound is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023 and will be marking it with a number of special events and occasions throughout the year, one of which recently took place with Welsh National Opera at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
In 1973, WNO became one of Autograph’s very first clients as they took delivery of a bespoke cue light and comms system, designed and built by company founder Andrew Bruce. In a remarkable coincidence and almost exactly 50 years later, Welsh National Opera have just taken delivery of a suite of Riedel comms equipment, also supplied and commissioned by Autograph.
To mark the occasion, Andrew Bruce visited WNO to meet their technical staff and present a commemorative certificate to Ian Jones, WNO’s recently retired head of lighting & sound. Ian started at WNO in 1979 and used Andrew’s original system for some years, so they had much to discuss!
