Flute Concerto Piece?

I am considering audititioning for the senior concerto competition at my school this spring. If I get picked, I will get to play a piece with our band, which has to be memorized. Do any of you have ideas for what I could play? It can't be too long, under 5 minutes (preferably), and I want it to be a beautiful, yet catchy song that kind of sticks in people's head, you know? I would love to play Francois Borne's Carmen Fantasie, but I am afraid I wouldn't be able to memorize something that long. So anyways, all suggestions are appreciated! Thanks :)

    You'll need to choose a concerto that's arranged for band rather than orchestra. That will limit you, but there are still quite a few good choices. Check out some of these selections from Larry Krantz Flute Pages:

    Good luck with your audition. It's not often that you get an opportunity to perform a concerto with a full band. It will be a great experience.

    Mozart Flute Concerti 1 and 2

    Especially 2 in D major. It's really nice, kinda difficult in my opinion (i don't play flute).

    It's about 8 minutes, which is relatively short for a first movement of a concerto.
