Amending the shared code, you could probably do

getMidiArpeggios =
#(define-music-function (val mus) (number? ly:music?)
    (lambda (m)
      (and (music-is-of-type? m 'event-chord)
             (lambda (elt)
               (eq? (ly:music-property elt 'name) 'ArpeggioEvent))
             (ly:music-property m 'elements))
           (midiArpeggio val  m)))

\getMidiArpeggios 24
\new Staff \relative c' {
  <c e g c>4\arpeggio
  <c e g c>2
  <c e g c>\arpeggio
