Performances were conducted on solo marimba, multiple percussion, and timpani as well as a concerto, with different sets of judge at each round. Arnold, a percussion major from Poland who as a freshman won Category 1 of the 2009 International Marimba Competition, was one of four finalists in the percussive arts solo competition.
