How to be heard over the rest of my 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 decent during competitions.

Rachmaninoff - Moments Musicaux Op. 16 No.1

in Piano

I just started transposing this piece on Musescore, and something struck me as odd. In the second measure, the right hand progression is written as D flat, F, G natural, A flat, B flat, C. In every recording I've listened to, the A flat is played as an A natural. The A flat that's written in the score doesn't sound right at all. Has anyone else ever worked on this piece or noticed the atonality of this section? The piece is otherwise beautiful and I can't wait to finish it so I can share it with the community.

Infamous 16th note Passages & Band Excerpts

I wanna know some lists of pieces that you all have played during your time in Band in School, and What are some pieces that you all have played with some of the most Infamous straight 16th note runs that last for more than 16 Bars in the Woodwind Parts in Band Pieces? I have one to start it off and it's Metroplex by Robert Sheldon, has anyone ever played this piece or anything just as bad like it?
