“DPAC was made for an artist like Anita Baker. We're so proud to have been chosen to host her first ever theater appearance in the Triangle. There is no better setting than DPAC, with our great sightlines and state of the art sound, I think this could be one those concerts that only comes once in a lifetime,” said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC.
