music a level pieces

Hellooo im doing a level music eduquas and i kinda need help. i dont know what piece to work on for the performance aspect. I am an alto and i have a pretty low range. my cut off range to head voice is at E lol.
An E4? Or an E5? Because if you can belt up to an E5 that's pretty high. If you have a strong head voice that's not so much of an issue when singing opera or classical music in general because belting is a more pop-y or musical theatre technique.

In terms of what pieces to choose, there is a huge pdf published by edexcel with lists of pieces with grades for each instrument that you can look at. Also, try looking up "pieces for altos" and singing some pieces to see which ones feel ok in terms of range. Maybe you could also ask your teachers for advice.
