Dr Beat Richer would have to be one of the most inspirational people I've ever seen. In this concert he mixes beautiful classical Bach with a brief history of the struggles of the Cambodian people from his perspective as a doctor who's been there since the 1970s, before the Khmer Rouge. Don't read anymore reviews, just go, and be punctual... More

Very nice, funny, heartbreaking and educational. Please go and contribute. They do not accept little kids in unless you promise they are able to stay silent during the concert and the explanations.

If you're interested in learning a bit more about this man's remarkable work then take a break from the bars and go and listen to his story. In between he plays some solo cello pieces rather well, but the main thing is to hear how he has contributed to the heath and welfare of Cambodian children. There's plenty of time... More

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
