Wow what an amazing and inspiring guy. He's incredible, what he did/does more people should do. I went there for the music and left thinking how incredible is he, I want to help him and make a difference like he does. Whenever you're in a Siem Reap go to the concert listen to him, be inspired and don't forget to... More

Dr Beat plays the Cello like a professional. A very good mix of music with oral introduction & insight into the medical scenario facing Cambodian children...a situation the super rich pharmaceutical companies worldwide choose to ignore. I was told free medication is only for PAYING patients. I suggest asking payment of 1 RIEL/patient.

I loved everything about this. You are able to hear from the man who started all the children's hospitals, how he did it, the struggles, and the rewards. His hospitals are based off donations only and there is a reason. He has done so much to be where he is and it is a great event to go to just... More

We attended this concern on Saturday 17th May and Beatocello was not there to perform. It's completely understandable that he can't be there every week, but it would be good if there were a way of notifying tourists (although this would surely affect their fundraising). Instead we were shown a DVD about the hospitals which was interesting, just not the... More

We attended a concert ant the Kantha Bopha hospital in Siem Reap by Dr Beat. The work this man has undertaken and still undertakes within Cambodia is inspirational beyond real description. His passion is obvious and his drive is amazing, to have constructed five hospitals and continue to find funding is an every day problem in his quest to provide... More

I have known Beatocello as a musician for decades, I like him. It was most impressive to hear more about what has been achieved in building up the Kantha Bopha hospitals in Cambodia. The concert drew a big crowd in a nice concert hall.

A very enjoyable evening of Beatocellos work. He performs on his cello, then talks about his work with the children at the hospital. He is a true inspiration. We were then shown a video which brings it home even more. The next day I went and donated blood and saw for myself how busy the waiting area is. It became... More

Interspersed with five or six cello pieces Dr Beat Richner brought alive the anxieties and frustrations of founding five hospitals over the years, as well as the ongoing problems of funding. This is a very special man and I feel privileged to have met him. An emotional one and a half ours. Don't miss him.

World class performance in so many ways. You seldom share time with someone who has accomplished so much - both musically and even more so for humanity.

The Beatocello Concert is well-advertised in town. I attended on two consecutive Saturdays at 7:15 in the evening, as Dr. Beat was in Switzerland on one evening but we were still able to view one of his films on the work being done at Bopha Hospitals. I enjoyed the experience very much and felt that it was important to know... More
