In his essay “The Industrial Evolution of the Arts: Chicago’s Auditorium Building (1889–) as Cultural Machine,” Mark Clague argues that the interrelationship between financial, social, and artist components of an institution is key to understanding how music functions in the culture of the United States. Choose one of the music venues that you have encountered thus far (either during Immersion Week or on your own) and explain how it compares to the Auditorium Theatre with respect to its financial, social, and artistic functions. How is your venue similar? More importantly, how is it different? How does your venue’s unique relationship between these three functions affect our understanding of it as a music scene? You should draw on (and properly cite!) at least of one of the readings by Clague, Finnegan, Vaillant, Ratliff, or Bennett and Peterson
Consider the following in constructing your arguments:
A scene encompasses the music, musicians, audience, material culture (the physical things associated with the music), venue and/or location, media, production, and shared values and aesthetics.
What is the balance between financial, social, and artistic components?
What role does each component play? How might the components reinforce or counteract each other?
Music institutions often play a larger role than individual participants in music scenes. In what ways do institutions’ missions and priorities affect the balance between the financial, social, and artistic components in this scene?
Did the scene you encountered develop to serve a particular purpose? How has this purpose changed or developed over time?
Who participates in this scene? How might institutional priorities affect who has access to this scene?
What do conflicts within the scene—such as between participants’ expectations and reality, between institutions, or between the individual components themselves—reveal about the balance between the components?
Why are some institutions better able to outlive their founding members than others? What musical and/or social values developed within the context of this scene? How have these values influenced the balance between financial, social, or artistic components? How have the components influenced the values held by individual and institutional participants?
Be specific! We expect you to make specific points in your essay and illustrate them with detailed examples from our shared experiences as a group. You will also need to rely on your journal entries. Make sure you use and cite our class discussions and at least one of the readings from Weeks 1–5 to support your argument. You will be graded on the clarity of your observations, your use of class material (discussions and readings), the appropriateness with which you link the two, and the quality of your writing (i.e. grammar).

Not sure how to cite something? The Writing Center has many resources for how cite sources:http://condor.depaul.edu/writing/writers/citations.html. Please follow the Modern Language Association (MLA) style guidelines.
Here is a model citation for how to cite in MLA style when you have quoted directly from a book:
Derek Vaillant writes that “music made a distinctive contribution to the reform environment envisioned by progressive park planners, landscapers, and municipal officials” (60).
For an indirect reference:
In September 1902, conflicts over what music should be played and how people should behave at concerts in Chicago’s city parks boiled over into fighting and police brutality at a concert in Garfield Park (Vaillant 58).
This source should then be included in your Works Cited page at the end of the paper:
Vaillant, Derek. Sounds of Reform: Progressivism & Music in Chicago, 1873–1935. Chapel Hill: U of North Carolina P, 2003. Print.
