Center Stage has worked with two ensembles from Armenia: MVF Band and The Naghash Ensemble. Both ensembles were selected as part of the sixth edition of the program, touring in 2023.


Since 2014, Center Stage has hosted journalists from participating countries who accompany ensembles as they tour the U.S. Participating journalists increase coverage of the tours in their home countries while gaining direct knowledge and new understanding of the U.S. media landscape.
