This list comes from Bill Lantz's Frank Zappa and The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra page and Charles Ulrich's research (last updated: July 29, 2009). Instead of repeating the big list anytime the orchestra appears anywhere on the site, I've decided to put them all together here and provide a link to this page.
Frank Zappa—composer, conductor, guitar
Lou Anne Neill—harp
Dana Hughes—bass trombone
Don Waldrop—tuba and contrabass trombone
Arthur Briegleb—French horn
David Duke—French horn

Special Thanks to Charles Ulrich and Bill Lantz for their helpful research of the Royce Hall engagement.
I found this blurred list of musicians that appear as full orchestra on "Bogus Pomp" and "Lumpy Gravy".
Btw: The original information said that the above list was signed by 20 of 36 musicians.
