Juno nominee Tom Barlow will be presented with a prestigious Alumni Award by the Toronto Catholic District School Board on May 6th.
Mr. Barlow is a graduate of Holy Redeemer Catholic School and Brebeuf College School.  He is a successful professional musician, entertainer and song writer. He devotes most of his time to service for social justice issues, activism and engaging youth in ways to understand and improve their world.
He has received four Juno Award nominations (most recently for the 2013 Adult Contemporary Album of the Year), the Canadian Rising Star Award, a Canadian Radio Music Award nomination and won the Virgin Radio 99.9 Songwriting Contest. He has toured with such prominent artists as John Mayer, BareNaked Ladies and Tom Cochrane.
Believing that music has the ability to inspire and educate, he designed the Young Minds on Music Program, which demonstrates the power of music to change our minds, our communities and our planet for the better. His band performs in combat zones in Central America and tiny Inuit communities in the high Arctic.  He also helped develop The Music Business program for the TCDSB Continuing Education Department.
