Two venerable classical music groups wrap up their 2012-13 seasons this weekend — and you can catch them both. The Pioneer Valley Symphony, one of the oldest community music groups in the country, will perform selections by Mozart as well as Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 at Greenfield High School on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday at 3 p.m., the Hampshire Choral Society marks its 60th anniversary with an all-Beethoven concert at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Fine Arts Center.
