    riser

    in the sentence:

    the singers of the choir sprinted down the stands (to see a rock star, their idol), their footsteps rattled metal risers and squaeked on the gymnasium floor.

    what do "metal risers" mean here?


    another sentence with the same word:

    the boys in the choir were sitting on the risers and playing video games.

    I it the same meaning" Thank you.
