How to be heard over rest of band?

So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...

I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound good during competitions.

Anybody Arranging for Alto Flute?

Hi everyone! I've been lurking around this website for a while but this is my first forum post. I just bought an alto flute, and I was wondering if any of you were composing or arranging solo pieces for the instrument. I can't seem to find much when I search the site so I thought I'd ask here. Right now I'm particularly interested in video game and anime derived pieces - I'm part of my city's Gamer Symphony Orchestra and want to keep in theme - but honestly I'll play anything.
