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

Thee are not many people in the world who would devote their life to people who are desperately poor and fight for their right to have medical care. If you would like to learn more about the health system, hear some music and hopefully donate some money, this is an interesting hour and a half.

I last listened to Beatocello three years ago and his message, like the issues he faces daily, has not changed much. It is humbling to see how a man can make a difference to the lives of so many people. It is disingenuous to go on about the aircon, the size of the theatre etc. Please look at what the... More
