Depressing to see how much money clearly went into the concert hall and to run the absolutely freezing aircon when there isn't even a proper waiting room for the patients who have to line up along the road all day with no shelter from the sun or rain... seems like they have been strategically put there on display to garner...

A must if you like cello music. It is obviously a fund raiser but I was pleasantly surprised to see that although donations were collected afterwards there was no pressure to pay up. Dr. B. has done an amazing job building hospitals in Cambodia and this concert raises funds weekly for this very worthwhile cause.

Even my teenage children (age 13 and 14) are genuinely touched and motivated by the effort of Dr Beat. He intervenes his narrations in clear English (Swiss in origin), and Cello performance. His effort in setting up the five totally free children hospitals is really amazing. He shows a movie of the hospitals and the celebrities visited Kantha Bopha Hospitals.... More

Beatocello, was far too repetitive. I enjoyed the cello music. The message the doctor is giving is very valid and the hospital definitely does do a good job and needs more money. BUT, he was too repetitive in his explanations, and even the movie he shows is also very repetitive. So, to me he wasted his and my time. I... More

I have been living in Siem Reap for a few months and tried to go to the concert with my daughter but was greeted with a man telling me in French (happy I understand French) that we were not allowed in because she is too young. I wanted to ask if there were some graphic images that made it inappropriate... More

Like many people said here, the place is a fridge. Do bring a coat to stay warm. I got cold after this concert. The Dr means well, and the movie is very inspiring although it needs editing for length and updating to the current time. Also, while people are feeling under the influence of the movie, they should set up... More
