i would defiantly memorize it. work on memorizing small segments at a time and then piece them together. download the piece on to your ipod and listen to it as much as you can, even if you aren't consciously listening. it really helps to get the piece into your mind.

if they are asking two contrasting movements of a concerto, they normally mean one fast one slow. why not use a mozart concerto? first movement and then second movement. very standard and good for auditions.

The solo goes to the end of the movement. Have fun playing it! The picc part is lots of fun, as I'm sure you already know.

offset G for sure! It is so much more comfortable and if you don't have pain in your hand now it might develop later and it would be a wise choice to go with the offset for this reason.

solo concerts- long dresses/gowns in whatever color I feel looks good
orchestral performances/group performances- long black skirts and black blouses, black shoes

I also would recommend buying Ms. Baxtresser's orchestral excerpts book.
