The Bilbao International Singing Competition was first held in 1984, driven by the great love of choral music and opera among the population of Bizkaia and the Basque Country in general.

In 1985, the competition joined the World Federation of International Musical Competitions, a UNESCO organisation, which provided it with resulted significant endorsement and international showcasing. Right from the start, hundreds of aspiring singers have taken part in the Bilbao competition and some of them today are members of the casts of major international theatres, including Ana María Sánchez, Isabel Rey, Micaela Carosi and Francisco Casanova.

The involvement of an international jury has been one of the basic pillars underpinning the recognised world prestige of the Bilbao International Singing Competition.

In 2012, the competition has changed its name and will henceforth be known as the "PEDRO Mª UNANUE" BILBAO-BIZKAIA INTERNATIONAL SINGING COMPETITION. The qualifying rounds will be starting on 26 November and the grand final will be held on 1 December
