World on Stage is the creation of Lexington's Subhash Malhotra, creator of the highly successful Boston International Festival, New England's largest multicultural celebrationwhich began in 1992.  
In 1998, International Festivals were expanded to other major U.S. cities including Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Edison, NJ. The Festivals were last held in 2002.

Originally from India, Malhotra came to the United States in 1967.  With three master's degrees and having traveled to more than 50 countries both personally and during his days as a management consultant with Arthur D. Little, Malhotra has always had an affinity for showcasing and celebrating the rich diversity of world culture present in the United States.   

Concerning this new project, he commented, "Now, with World On Stage, we are focusing specifically on international music and dance 
by some of the world's most outstanding young and upcoming artists on the international music scene. We hope our audiences will be a combination of loyal fans, along with those discovering new artists and new sounds.  Each concert is unique, and I know each will offer an opportunity for us to share each other's culture."
