    "What's the head count?" would be one idiomatic way to ask about attendance. – Hot Licks May 5 '15 at 1:44

"How many of us are there here?" -- Emphasizes the connection between speaker and audience".

"What is the size of this audience?" -- More impersonal.

"How many are we?" -- More poetic, less clear about whether "we" are just the audience or some larger group.
