Encore Pit Band

Encore Pit Band – TOMBO COMBO

The heartbeat of the Encore Entertainment Company, the Encore Pit Band offers high quality performance experience and education to instrumentalists at Medina High School.  Auditions for the Encore Pit Band are in May of the previous school year.

Welcome to the Encore Entertainment Company Family. Whether your daughter or son has participated before or this is the first year, Encore has a long tradition of excellence in both performance and music education that will continue because of the commitment and contribution of your son or daughter as well as your time and support.

My name is Tom Bonezzi, and I am the director of the Encore Pit Band, often referred to as “Tombo Combo” by the students. This will be my seventh year with Encore in this role, and I’m excited for this year’s group of students, especially in these extremely uncertain times.

It would be helpful to review the Encore Handbook created for next year. More information specific to the pit band will be coming, but this gives an overview into the involvement to which your son/daughter has been accepted; each of them received a link to this and were encouraged to share with you. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact me:


On behalf of Mr. Tyler Skidmore, Director, Ms. Katie Peyton, Assistant Director, and Ms. Christina Rueger, Choreography Assistant, we truly look forward to working not only with your son or daughter, but with you to make this year worthwhile, meaningful, and a great experience for your family.

All the best,Tom Bonezzi, Pit Director
