While walking along Scott Street behind the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet on some evenings, one’s ears might pick up the sounds of organ music from “The Phantom of the Opera.”  

Glenn Tallar, a Homer Glen native is the one rehearsing said music, destined for a life on the organ bench.

Pointing to a Barton Grand Theatre Pipe Organ inside the Rialto, Tallar begins the story of his love for music.
