good music to play at college auditions

For solo and ensemble and college auditions my senior year, my sax instructor picked out Concertino da camera (Ibert). THis past summer i went to a few different camps including blue lake, they all said, including some other prof. and sax instructors i know, that its too hard of a piece to play. I haven't decided if i'm going to drop it, but if i do what are some good pieces to play that are accepted for college auditions??

      It's only too hard if you can't play it.

          I'm working on petite suite right now, hehe. If you can pull that off, they'll let you in for sure. i auditioned on vivaldi's sonata in g minor, but that was on tenor.
