For its next concert, Early Music Now will present “The Dawn of Joy: Medieval Creativity,” an imaginative and expressive journey into the music of 14th-century Italy as preserved on manuscript.  Performing these mostly lively pieces will be a trio of world-renowned players of pre-modern European music, Shira Kammen and Margriet Tindemans on various early string instruments and percussionist Peter Maund.

The full concert takes place Saturday, Feb. 18, at Cathedral Church of All Saints, 818 E. Juneau Ave. A 4 p.m. lecture will be followed by the 5 p.m. concert. A Medieval-style dinner will be held afterward. For more information, go to www.earlymusicnow.org. An hour-long version of the concert will be held at St. Matthias Episcopal Church, located in Waukesha at the corner of Main Street and East Avenue, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17.
