I agree that Dr Beat Richner is a remarkable man and the work he is doing for Cambodian children is amazing, but when I see 'cello concert' advertised I expect at least 50% of the evening to be able to listen to cello music being played. I know the concert is to raise money for further work but I would... More

I'm now somewhat ashamed to admit I had no previous knowledge of Dr. Richer. My bus from Phnom Penh just happened to pass the hospital on the way to the bus station, my (horrible) hotel was just around the corner and it was Saturday, so why not go? And I'm so glad I did. The building itself is very pleasantly... More

What Dr Richer has achieved and continues to do is as impressive of human endeavour as the amazing stuctures at Ankor Wat. He plays his cello with the same passion as he works to improve the lives of children and despite the obvious difficulties he faces has a great sense of humour. Please go and hear this remarkable man and... More

Dr richer is a passionate and committed man. His story is one of triumph amongst terrible odds of corruption, greed and obstacles placed in his way. He tells the story of his life and achievements, his life devoted to selflessly helping others. The story of what he has had to be up against is harrowing. Well worth supporting.

Dr. Beat is a humble and kind man, he plays his trusty italian cello to raise money for the hospitals for children. its a shame that cambodian government do not help as the hospitals have been saving children's lifes for 23 years with 0.3% mortality rate!! He's also very entertaining......donate generously!!

Definitely one of my highlights in Cambodia. The concert is not so much about the music itself (although very nice as well), but more about the short talks that Beat Richner (Beatocello) gives about the Kantha Bopha hospitals that he has helped founding. Their model of providing free, high quality health care to Cambodian children and expecting mothers is very... More

Less of a cello concert and more of a biting attack on Cambodian corruption. The international community doesn't get a free pass either. As my waitresses said at l'Annexe restaurant (they gave birth to their children at Dr Beat Richner's hospital), "We call him God." People who have complained here that the concert was too long and the speeches too... More

I made a Swiss friend on one of my day tours of the temples in Siem Reap. He was excited to attend the free cello concert at a hospital. Dr. Beat Richner, a Swiss national, is the founder of several children's hospitals in Cambodia and performs cello concerts when he is in town. Dr. Richner or "Dr. Beat" gives his... More

We went to the concert unknowingly after seeing an ad for it behind a tuk-tuk that was parked on pubstreet, and boy am I glad we did! This concert is held in the Kantha Bopha children's hospital on the road to Angkor Wat and its not as much about music as we thought, but was extremely enjoyable nonetheless and very... More
