She's sitting the the viola section, not the violin section. That means she's not playing the melody at the start (she does so later). The viola is often used the play counterpoint or the like.

You can hear the difference if you listen closely to the music. There is a "dit-dah, dit-dah, dit-dat" sound as the main melody sounds.
