Performace Tips, Advanced Technique and More

So, I am a music education major going in to my sophomore year of school. I was in my university's wind ensemble last year, but I still need to re-audition. I was right in the middle of the section last year. I know that I have improved and want to show that to our director in my audition. I have a little over a month, so now is the time to choose repertoire! Along with my full range major scales and 7 full range minors at 100 bpm, the director asks that we play short, contrasting selections. I am thinking of playing the opening of Gaubert's Nocturne et Allegro Scherzando for my lyrical choice (which is a little over 2 minutes long) and Karg Elert Caprice No. 12 (about 1 minute). Does this seem appropriate as audition music? I know you know nothing of my capabilities by simply reading this, but does this seem appropriate for a sophomore music ed major?
