The Gregson would work well. I did it on a recital last year, and it seemed to go over well with the audience. Try this: I ended with "largo al factotum" from Barber of Seville (Rossini). You can easily find a reduced score to the opera in any music library. Listen to Sam Pilafian's "A Brassy Night at the Opera" which he did with Dave Hickman (trumpet), Tom Bacon (horn), and the Arizona State Chamber Symphony. He does the aria, and of course, it's absolutely amazing. Accel into the triple tonguing section, and end as fast as possible. It was a great closer & a serious crowd pleaser!! Good luck.
