Hello 阿忠 ā zhōng, It is either a short and lively sounding of trumpets to introduce the arrival of someone important or a special event or a showy outward display.

A fanfare is a short piece of music played by trumpets and other brass instruments, frequently accompanied by percussion, usually for ceremonial purposes (usually for royalty or important people). The term is also used symbolically, for instance of occasions for which there is much publicity, even when no music is involved. cowboy...
