Was very impressive with Dr. Beat Richer's big heart to save Cambodian's children lives. Dr. Richer is swiss national who manages Kuntha Bopha Children Hospital in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The cello performance is part of his activities to support the hospital which really in need of help to save lives. Would highly recommend to drop by this concert... 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

A must when you are in Siem Reap. It will touch your heart and will give you more insight in the circumstances of the health care.

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

Our second time around. It is truly inspirational to be able to enjoy an evening of music performed by someone like Dr Richner who has untiringly done so much for this country. Highly entertaining in his talk and music. Donations are the lifeline for this massive project kept afloat all these years by his untiring energy. Makes us wonder what... More

This is the second year I have attended the concert. I would highly recommend it as a night out for any visitor, music is lovely but the history lesson is so entertaining as well. Congratulation to Dr Richter on his unfailing dedication and stubbornness to achieve such a phenomenal success against all the odds. God help Cambodia if he ever... More

Someone raved to me about this, but having read up on it I somewhat knew what to expect. I completely respect and appreciate his work, but it would have been good not to have the same point about the need for money (and blood) repeated ad nauseum in favour of a little more music. It probably would have made me... More

Cello is one of my favorite instruments, certainly when Bach is on the program. What a surprise to find out that the concert is in fact a fundraising act by the children hospital. No, the fundraising itself, endlessly explained was boring and could have been done is a way more compact and interesting way. But this being said, I was... More

Beatocello's concert was both a beautiful piece of music and a lesson in exactly what comprises a meaningful life. This is a man who has been responsible for saving hundreds of thousands or even millions of lives and yet he is still humble and hardworking. Highly recommend - please go and see him play.
