Thanks to all the recommendations on what to play. Here is the final list chosen by family. The Purcell piece can be a challenge if played in the fingerings reccomended (nose bleed sections on the lower strings).
RV William's Fantasy on Greensleeves
And for pieces for myself, I'm going to focus on Bruch Romance (page 3 & 4, Hoffmeister's Concerto, Terzetto's by Dvorak, Beethoven and Bach for my trio group, and all the requisite etudes, scale studies, vibrato studies, etc..
It is nice to have a break (musically) for awhile.
