Presidential Inaugurals


After Producing the Virtual Democratic Convention during the pandemic, President Biden’s team asked Kirshner to be the Executive Producer of the 2021 Inaugural Events.  In this role, he oversaw Talent and Content for the Swearing In Ceremony.  In addition, he produced the Virtual Parade Across America which had participants from all 50 States.  He Produced the COVID Memorial at the Reflecting Pool. On the night of the inauguration, Kirshner was the Executive Producer of Celebrating America.  This Inauguration Special, hosted by Tom Hanks was Produced Live from the Lincoln Memorial and featured Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, John Legend and many others with appearances by the President and Vice President.  All of these events were produced by our team with less than 6 weeks to prepare.


In 2009, The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) turned to Ricky Kirshner to produce the televised events for Barack Obama’s historic Inauguration. These events included the “We Are One” Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial, the Kid’s Concert for the Disney Channel, and the Neighborhood Ball, which featured the now-iconic “first dance of the first couple” as they were serenaded by Beyonce. Mr. Kirshner and his team successfully put together these major events in less than one month. RKP was not only responsible for staging, creating, and executing each event, but also for securing the participation of every major act.

Then, in 2013, the PIC asked RK Productions to produce the Kids Inaugural Concert for First Lady Michelle Obama, and to coordinate all of the Official Inaugural Balls which featured Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, and others. RK Productions is capable of bringing the same style, professionalism, and expertise to your high-profile event.
