Jeff Lunden reports an arts organization that's brought orchestras, jazz combos and dance ensembles to small U.S. towns for 75 years is fighting for survival. Community Concerts was sold a few years ago to an arts promoter who's now having trouble paying performers. Some artists are suing the new owner, and a group of non-profits is trying to regroup and keep Community Concerts alive.
