This year's Talent / No Talent show had it all, including stand-up comedy, dancing and an original rap song that took serious nerves — the brachial plexus, to be specific. The annual event fills the Bastyr auditorium, where the community comes together to revel, relax and show off their talents. In a first this year, the night featured a webcast of an opera performance from our San Diego campus, which welcomed its first class in September. In total, there were nine performances as well as a free-for-all opening "dance" by all the participants.
Check out this video of the winning performance, an original rap song about the brachial plexus, a complex series of nerves in the arm and shoulder, by DJD and MC Mitteschmerz.
