The Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee announced the talent lineup for the Inaugural Celebration for Pennsylvania governor-elect Josh Shapiro. Musical performers scheduled include Wiz Khalifa, Smokey Robinson and Mt. Joy. The Inaugural Celebration will be hosted Tuesday evening, January 17 at Rock Lititz in Lancaster County.
“We are honored and excited to have such top level talent, representing our Commonwealth’s great diversity, performing at the Inaugural Celebration,” said Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee Executive Director Amanda Warren. “As we seek to create a dynamic, interactive, and accessible event for all Pennsylvanians, we have chosen artists who provide something for everyone and we are honored they’ll join us. We look forward to showcasing the very best of Pennsylvania and celebrating the inauguration of our 48th Governor on Tuesday evening.”
The Inaugural Committee said it wanted to plan a dynamic celebration — one that brings people together around great music to mark the beginning of the Shapiro-Davis Administration.
Khalifa is a Pittsburgh native who attended Taylor Allderdice High School. Members of the band Mt. Joy have Pennsylvania roots, with some of the founding members meeting in high school outside of Philadelphia.
The inaugural celebration will happen after Shapiro takes the oath at Noon on Tuesday at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex. Shapiro will be sworn in as Pennsylvania’s 48th Governor.
