Andy Read: Support Oakland Public Music & Get Free Symphony Tickets!

7 Apr

This guest post was written by Andy Read, the Managing Broker of Caldecott Properties who was a founding partner when Caldecott Properties began in 2005. He manages a team of 30 licensed sales associates and has brokered $170MM+ in sales and 250+ rental transactions for Caldecott. Andy was born in Berkeley, raised in Orinda, and is a graduate of U.C. Davis with B.A. degrees in Sociology-Economic Organizations and Philosophy. Andy donates a portion of each of his sales transactions to Berkeley’s East Bay Humane Society, the East Bay’s only no-kill animal shelter.

The Business in the Arts Networking Circle (BANC) is a network of local businesses that have joined together with the Oakland East Bay Symphony to promote a lively arts environment and support vital public music education programs.

Caldecott Properties and BANC are proud to support Oakland East Bay Symphony’s Music for Excellence Program. Music for Excellence’s In-School Mentor Program and After-School Program bring music education and enrichment to nearly 2,200 young people in 19 of Oakland’s public schools, providing students in grades 4 – 12 with continuous, sequential instrumental music instruction tuition free.

We hope that you will partner with us as we serve the children and youth of Oakland.
