WHO WE ARE
In 1986, two sisters – Jane, a high school choral music teacher with a creative vision, and Beth, a recent college graduate with a vocal performance degree and fierce determination – fulfilled their dream of starting a show apparel company. Embracing their passion for music, the sisters wished to create a company where innovative choral music educators could purchase quality, creative, custom-designed garments for their competitive groups.
Apparel creation soon became a passion for the sisters, which inspired them to create clothing lines for all types of choral and instrumental groups. They strongly believe groups perform at a greater level when they look great on stage and have a consistent appearance. Since day one, Rivar’s has been proud to manufacture locally while also having the ability to dress performance groups internationally.
OUR COMMITMENT TO MUSIC EDUCATION
Rivar’s company culture is deeply rooted in an ongoing commitment to music education. We believe music educators are an inspiration to their students and play a large role in their development and future successes. Music performance groups teach life-long lessons which help to increase the value of our lives and those we interact with.
Rivar’s President/CEO, Beth Rivar Slusher is actively communicating with music educators in her daily interactions with customers, many who have become life-long friends. Beth also spends her time as a board member for the Give a Note Foundation, a strategic partner to the National Association for Music Education.
