HEARTbeats In Nepal

I recently returned from Nepal where my foundation was working with orphans from the Unatti House  and children in Bhaktapur. I also had the pleasure of doing my very first Artist Ambassador program with the Save The Children foundation and I can say that everything was an intensely emotional and gratifying experience. I plan on writing more about everything but until then, there is an extraordinary record of the trip at the HEARTbeats Nepal blog. From there, you can find a wonderful account of what transpired from the perspective of my wife and HEARTbeats co-founder Helen Nightengale, Unatti House Founder, Stephanie Waiser, HEARTbeats executive board member, Drew McManus, and one of our documentarians, Janelle Eagle (bios).

Speaking of the documentatians, we had a three member film crew along to document everything and we plan on having that footage available within the next several weeks so you can see exactly what made this a very special trip; one we hope will be the first of many.

    Dear Mr. Harrell, I very much enjoyed your London Prom. I am a retired cellist now in a wheel-chair. In fact I met you at my last concert as a professional player when you played the Elgar in Bristol UK with the Ulster Orchestra, Dimitri Sitkovetsky and have a snapshot of you taken at the time. I have written 3 books for young cellists, one of which is on a London Examining Board Syllabus. The website associated with the book has a gallery of famous cellists, Casals, Feuermann…may I inclued your image with these. It is of good quality and wonderfully characteristic. I am very happy to donate all royalties for 5 years to the Heartbeats Foundation. If you ever have time to reply or grant permission my email is info(at)cellowise.com with grateful thanks.Tibet neighbouring Nepal has also been close to my heart for as long as I can remember.
