Conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic will perform during the "In Memoriam" segment, the Academy said. The show will also feature musical performances of the five Original Song nominees.
Gigliotti and Weiss will announce additional talent joining the show in the coming weeks, the Academy said.
There has been some acrimony over exclusive rights to some presenters this year. The Screen Actors Guild earlier criticized the film academy for requiring that its potential presenters not appear at previous awards shows.
The Oscars will be held on Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on ABC, beginning at 5 p.m. PST.
The show will be broadcast in more than 225 countries and territories.
